A Day at the Lodge
Arrive at our oasis around midday to a warm welcome and a cold drink. A light lunch and dessert is served on the lawns in the shade of an acacia tree, with a view over a well frequented waterhole.
In the late afternoon, arm yourself with binoculars and cameras and set off with your ranger in an open Landcruiser. Follow bush roads through our reserve, using all of your senses to find the animals. We stop for everything of interest, possibly the spoor of hunting lions or a herd of dazzling zebras.
We halt at a vantage point as the sun goes down and the day turns swiftly to night, to enjoy sundowner drinks and snacks. The flashlights come on as we search for secretive nocturnal creatures, from the sleek genet, the cute bush baby to an unforgettable view of a leopard.
Back at the Lodge, the campfire is blazing, heralding a romantic dinner in the boma. Dinners are a social affair, with guests mingling with their hosts as they enjoy fireside cuisine with an African influence. During the warmer summer evenings, we serve candlelit dinners under the stars.
Retire to your comfortable room, with a multitude of memories, to prepare yourself for the excitement of the day ahead.
Your ranger will knock on the door to awaken you to the Bushveld dawn. Coffee, tea and rusks are served in the outdoor lounge. Enjoy the antics of playful vervet monkeys as they too prepare for the day. Set off into the sunrise in the Landrover to find out what has been happening in the dead of night and follow spoor of animals on the move. Your ranger will lead you off on foot too, to discover sights which you would miss from a vehicle. The dawn chorus of birdsong is particularly memorable.
Return to the Lodge for a hearty breakfast, with an abundance of home-made “goodies”, including our famous Marula Jelly.
Relax around the pool for the morning or recline upon a chaise lounge with a view over the waterhole.
A “feel at home” ambiance will ensure that you have a truly memorable stay with us.
