The bush walk focuses on the ecology, geology and flora of the area, as well as the small bush inhabitants, including insects and birds. One can also discover the interesting and unique world of trees, grasses and flowers - of course, occasionally big game can be seen on walks - including elephants, rhinos, giraffes, and buffaloes. For those who prefer a more relaxing alternative, game and bird viewing from the River Deck is an option, or a selection of wildlife books and videos can be enjoyed in the Lounge.

Seasons differ vastly in the African bushveld, but no season can be rated above another one as each has its own unique appeal. Spring (September) and autumn (April) are very short seasons in close proximity to the Tropics, and usually provide milder weather conditions and subtle changes in vegetation. Summer (October to March) tends to be hot, but the bush looks wonderfully green and lush. Many mammals produce their offspring in the height of summer (December, January) and the youngsters are a special treat on safaris. The winter months (May to August) bring drier, more temperate weather condition. These months are ideal for game watching as the trees do not carry leaves and animals can be spotted a lot easier in their natural habitat.
