Each day guests are offered the opportunity to experience our Nature Reserve on foot. Bush Walks provide a unique opportunity for nature lovers and adventure seekers to experience the amazing African wildlife up close. Each bush walk is led by a highly qualified, enthusiastic, Game Guide ensuring guests safely experience this unique experience.
Depending on their age, young children will join in open game drive vehicles for safety reasons. Guests will kick-start the day with steaming hot coffee and homemade rusks, before venturing out at around 6:00 am. At around 8:00 am a guest return to sit down to a sumptuous breakfast buffet.
Our highly skilled Game Guides will accompany guests in the morning and early evening in open 4×4 game drive vehicles. Their extensive knowledge and training ensure that your game experience will be unforgettable, exciting and informative. This private reserve is known for its close encounters with a vast variety of game including the Big Five (lion, leopard, elephant, buffalo, and rhino). In addition, all game drives on the reserve coordinate their game viewing activities which ensure the best of sightings. Halfway through the early evening game drive, there’s a stop for sundowners and snacks, before returning to the lodge at around 7:00 pm, with enough time to freshen up before sitting down to a buffet dinner, served in the open air boma (weather permitting).
Activity time table will vary in the summer and winter months.
