    The Lodge

    The main lodge building consists of an open lounge and dining area and a bar and a boma for evening meals. There is a small swimming pool in the garden with deck-chairs. The reception office houses a small curio shop.  Dinner is usually served in the boma under the stars  and many safari stories are told around the campfire at night. 

    At close walking distance from the public areas is our hide. This is where guests can observe animals and birds both during the day and at night. The hide overlooks a permanent waterhole, as well as a seasonal dam. All areas are connected with well laid out walkways. The camp is unfenced and we have regular bush inhabitants browsing very close to the lodge (e.g. nyala, giraffe, warthogs) making for great photo opportunities.
