Am I guaranteed to see the animals when staying in the Lodge?

You are likely to see the animals from your Lodge, but due to the nature of our wildlife, sometimes they do rest in areas which are not easy to view, particularly during inclement weather or very hot weather, as we expect our animals to live and act as closely as their species do in the wild. Animal husbandry and health check-ups may also mean that some animals are not visible at certain times.
