On arrival you will be welcomed and requested to sign the

In the late afternoon, depart on your first game drive.
With cooler boxes of your favorite drinks on board the Land
Rovers, you will set off into the bush on an exciting safari
accompanied by a professional game ranger. At sunset, your
rangers will stop off in the bush, where you will have a chance
to enjoy your refreshing drinks, soak up the amazing silence and
watch the sun sink into the dusty horizon. Continue on with the
game drive after dark, using a powerful spotlight to point out
nocturnal wildlife. The chances are excellent that you will
encounter lion, leopard, elephant, rhino, buffalo, cheetah and
many other species of game in their natural habitat. The
vehicles go off the road, when necessary, to afford you the best
possible viewing. The safari continues on into the dark when
spotlights are used to follow the game. As most of the predators
are nocturnal, this is the best time for viewing – especially as
most hunting occurs at night.
Return to the lodge where you will have a chance to freshen up
and meet in the bar for pre-dinner drinks. Dinner in the
open-air, reed enclosed boma, under the stars, around a roaring
log fire or in the dining room. Spend the evening with your
ranger, talking about the African bush.
DAY TWO, THREE & FOUR
Early morning wake up call followed by tea, coffee and biscuits
served on the dining verandah.
Early morning and late afternoon are the best times to see most
of the large mammals, so today you will enjoy an early morning
game drive as well as a late afternoon/evening game drive.
Animals which are mostly seen in the early morning include
rhino, lion, leopard and giraffe. Lion are very active in the
early morning and this is when you may see a pride on a kill or
moving around with their young. As the day wears on, the animals
usually retire to the shade of a tree or bush and may spend the
best part of the day sleeping, only to emerge in the late
afternoon or evening. Night-time is when the large carnivores –
except wild dogs and cheetahs – do their hunting, and if you are
lucky you may stumble on a kill.
After breakfast, walks are offered with an experienced armed
tracker (these walks are subject to availability). Our
knowledgeable guides and trackers will lead you on guided nature
walks through the heart of the bush, revealing some of nature's
most closely guarded secrets. You will have a chance to
experience the African bushveld close-up as you tread past
intriguing plants and spy more elusive, smaller creatures such
as birds, reptiles, insects and tiny mammals.
Return to the lodge for lunch and dinner. Depending on the time
of year you visit, you might enjoy a breakfast or dinner in the
bush. You will arrive at an area out in the bush where tables
have been set for an unforgettable bush breakfast or braai
(barbecue) out in the wilds of the African veld.
Early morning wake up call for your last game drive. Return to
the lodge for breakfast before check out and departure at 10H55
