          We are looking at various game lodges around this area. Many seem to be inclusive of 2 game drives a day. Are Pumba's game drives inclusive?

          We are going over for 3 nights In late June, really looking forward to it. As it may not be particularly warm enough to be soaking up the sun in between game drives I was wondering what else can you do? Is there a small town close by we can go to? I have read about the spa, not my partners thing but I may well have a treatment or two!
