Hyena arriving late at the carcass of a dead giraffe

The camp is unfenced and open to the bush and dangerous wild animals occasionally come through the camp so you are very much part of nature!

Woodland kingfishers strutting their stuff!

The day starts at 4.30am with coffee and rusks, departing at 5am on the first game drive or hike out of camp.  At that time of the morning the light is perfect for photos but more importantly the animals are more likely to be out as the day heats up and temperature can reach 40 degrees!

Elephant encounter!

In the evenings, sit round the camp fire and share stories and make friends!  Guests tend to go to bed early for the early start next day and have a siesta around midday when it is very hot.

Sitting round the fire at night in the open bush!

Clothing should be khaki or brown or beige in order to blend into the bush.  A good pair of walking boots are recommended, as well as hat and water bottle or camel.  A small rucksack comes in handy to carry your camera, extra water, snacks, etc.  We also recommend downloading an App on your phone with all the birds in Southern Africa.  This will enable you to recognise species and also the App will have bird calls so you can also identify a bird by its call.
