Walks and Rock Art:
Take some time to experience the finer detail of the bush with a guided walk that will bring you closer to the wildlife, and allow you to experience those sights and sounds that you may very well miss on a vehicle. The Lodge is situated near to an exquisite rock art site dating back to around 2000 years ago. Walks to this site can be arranged where you can learn about why these paintings are so important to those who painted them, how they painted them and how we can interpret these paintings today.

Indulge in some stargazing after dinner, viewing the nearby planets and searching for your favourite constellations or just more insight into the night sky.

Game Drives:
Our knowledgeable guide will conduct your daily game drives to view the Big 5 or more. Our drive times are flexible and although we will offer advice, you get to choose what time you drive, and how long you go out for. All drives are conducted in our own open Land Rover with an on-board fridge to ensure an ice cold beverage at all times.
