Games Activities

Take in the breathtaking views of the Oliphants River Valley whilst sipping on a refreshment and savouring the local snacks.

For the more energetic we offer professionally guided bush and bird walks, where our extensive knowledge of all things wild are shared. Safety is of the utmost importance, which is why all excursions must be accompanied by one of our experienced field guides. We also offer accompanied day trips into the Kruger Park.


The large viewing deck, overlooking the Olifants River offers a variety of sightings daily from the Fish Eagle catching its daily food to the gentle giants of the bush grazing quietly on the banks of the river.

Welcome relief from the summer heat can be enjoyed in the splash pool while gripping sounds can be heard around the boma at night when the African Wood Owl and the Pelís Fishing Owl are calling their mates. For the adventurous spirits, game drive and bush walks are offered daily.
