The main area is unwalled and consists of a cosy bar, a breakfast/lunch area, a beautiful lounge and a small library. Our large collection of African masks is an eye-catcher and you will find safari artefacts such as books, maps, photographs and skulls. We have a small pool to cool off from the heat.

Dinner is usually served in the boma which also forms part of the central area. A boma is a round enclosure traditionally used to protect cattle from predators. Safari lodges use this concept for safe dinners under the stars, usually with roaring camp fires…

An important feature of the lodge is the hide, or observation platform. During the day you are welcome to go there and relax while looking out for animals and birds. There is a small waterhole in front of the hide and the KwaMbili dam, a little further away, is visible from the hide too.
