Excitement builds as you embark on your first Game Drive. Eyes are wide with the thrill, while the Land rover hugs the plains searching for the ever so elusive Leopard or the pride of White Lion. The amazement when seeing the Giraffe feeding off the tallest branches or the gentle nature of an Elephant carefully guiding its calf. Imagination runs with the wild, picturing the incredible speed, of the perfect chase between a Cheetah family and an Impala.

The day ends with a 3 course, fine dining meal in our cosy, fire lit dining area. Sipping on a glass of wine while watching the last bit of sun shimmering on the lake, hearing the roars of the Lions and the barks of the Hyena, makes for a relaxing night’s sleep.

Guests can be afforded the opportunity of going on a post dinner nocturnal drive to look for animals of the night. Under the guidance of a qualified Ranger and accredited photo guide, guests will be offered an hour lecture on the do’s and dont's of wildlife photography.

Sit under clear crisp skies and have the universe transcend upon you, as a Field Guide interprets the South Celestial Skies. Enjoy a wilderness walking trail under the guidance of well-trained Trail Guides,and experience the wonders of the reserves wilderness areas and the interpretation of signs and tracks left behind by various animal species. For guests who are avid birding enthusiasts, and who wish to go on a birding safari, they may choose to embark on a pre-arranged birding outing.
