After settling into the open vehicle specially designed to ensure your comfort and safety, your ranger will take you to see the unforgettable sights of the African bush and in the process share a wealth of knowledge with you, from the fascinating private life of the dung beetle to the intricacies of the wild dog’s social system.
A maximum of eight people in the vehicle ensure that you receive the ranger’s individual attention and enjoy an unforgettable experience. Game drive times are flexible, with the drives going out at a time chosen by the guests. Spontaneous drives may also go out in response to animal activity near the lodge. To get even closer to your surroundings, game walks are offered in place of, or in addition to, the game drives. Armed and experienced rangers will lead you along game paths, in the footsteps of the animals, allowing you to experience the thrill of walking through this wild environment.
