          Superb sights of elephants at your waterhole just feet away from the hide, and amazing game-viewing ride with your excellent guide into Hwange Park: 35 species including two lots of lions, and even more elephants (50 of whom were playing in a waterhole and mudbath).

          That depends. Sometimes, if you are paying full price. If not, they can be extra.
