Morning game drive and breakfast is followed by a road transfer to the Lodge. This area prides itself on its’ leopard viewing...leopards are territorial, their regular appearances in our area allow us to plot their movements and to observe their behavior. Many of the animals become familiar and are easily recognized – this enables us to name them. There is a female leopard named ‘Safari’ who is often seen around the camp.Approximately 14 leopards are found in the area in , 6 of which are seen on a regular basis. Large herds of buffalo numbering in excess of 300 often find their way to the Arathusa lake. One need not move far to enjoy the safari experience! Elephants are also seen in numbers.

In addition to the legendary Big Five the reserves are home to a large number of different mammal, bird and reptile species the habits and behavior of which will be highlighted by your ranger.There are various lion prides in the area, as well as a few nomadic males.

Game drives in an open safari vehicle meander their way into the bush each morning and late afternoon in search of animals large and small-  unparalleled photographic opportunities! Over 90% of guests will experience The Big 5 – very often in one day, sometimes in one drive.

Guided walks with an armed ranger may also be arranged. Helpful Hint – do not head into the bush in the middle of the day during summer months! Walks are usually arranged in the more moderate hours of the early morning. Being on foot brings an altogether different view of the bush.

Thatched luxury suites each have a bathroom en-suite ,and a verandah for optimum enjoyment of the surrounding wilds.
