“Bumble” or “Jungle” drives are provided for children 5yrs and younger. On these drives things of interest to children are pointed out, e.g. toothbrush plants, beetles, etc. The information on the drive is aimed at the age/s of the children on the drive. The “jungle/bumble drive” is included in the children’s special rate.
So why take the kids? Here are 6 reasons. 1) Many reserve lodges cater to families. Several offer family game drives as well as special activities for children under the age of 8. 2) The safari guides at this game park excel at explaining the bush to kids.
