Guests staying at the Fort House have the benefit of a private guide and vehicle, which allows flexibility with activities that include day and night game drives, walking safaris and fishing. Specialist walking safaris can also be arranged, searching for large animals such as elephant and buffalo with a specialised guide and tracker, subject to the availability of the guiding team.
