The lodge offers standard rooms and family rooms each tastefully decorated and with en-suite bathrooms. The units have access to a communal kitchen, two separate bomas (braai areas) and a lovely pool area. (Please bring your own pool towels).

The Bush Camp is an unfenced camp with 5 homely decorated tents erected in a laager formation around a large fire pit. There is an added 5 x 5 relaxing lounge tent where one can chill, read a book or play board games. Although wild this romantic gem of a camp still offers creature comforts with its comfy beds and hot showers.

On Site Facilities

Enjoy a dip in the magnificent pool, but don't forget to bring your towel. Wi-Fi is available in the restaurant and reception area. Game drives can be arranged at reception.

Dining

At the end of a long day's game viewing there are few things better than an ice cold beer and a delicious meal in the relaxed atmosphere of our Khululeka Restaurant which serves hearty authentic bush meals. Please note that pre-booking is necessary. No cash accepted on site. Card facility available.
