          Do you provide transportation to and from the airport? Does it need to be prearranged?

          How much does the safari trip cost and can it be arranged at the front desk? Do you recommend it?

          Answer
          Response from Dickson O | Property representative |
          Dear Lyerka, We do not have a safari desk within the hotel but there are reputable Safari companies we can recommend to you for your booking. The cost will depend on the places you chose to visit and for how long.
