    We didn't stay in the honeymoon suite but another couple we met stayed in one. They said they did have a private pool. The main pool was very nice and we were the only ones using it.

    I believe that the age requirement at Kings Camp was 7 years! I would not recommend taking a 4 year old, other than by your private non-open car. And then you will see only limited animals!
