Need to Know

The morning walks are weather and wildlife dependent. At no time do we put our guests at risk. If rangers assess the situation and decide a walk will not be taking place; then guests will go on a game drive. The camp is an open camp and rangers will walk you back to your chalet at night. The closest airport is Hoedspruit (20 minutes drive) and the roads are also easy enough to self-drive to the camp. Children over the age of five are welcome (see child policy below).

Safaris take place in open-topped Land Rovers or Land Cruisers and traverse an area of roughly 7000ha. Game drives take place in the afteroon and last for 3 hours. Safaris in the morning are on foot and also last for 3 hours.
