It is a privilege to wake up to the sweeping vistas of the Kruger National Park. There aren’t many other places on Earth more captivating.
Whether you’re looking to spend all day at the pool for some much needed relaxation, or are the first-at-gate Kruger-devotee, we have it all on offer for you.
Sometimes the best sightings happen on bush walks or drives. Other times, you don’t even need to leave the lodge to catch some incredible sightings. That’s the beauty of Kruger – each day is your own adventure.
Experience Kruger however you choose – whether you prefer to venture out in your own car, join us on a morning bush walk, or embrace its beauty from the comfort of one of our raised vehicles with our experienced guides.
Guided bush walks are an incredible way to immerse yourself into the wild, and to experience the bush in the most up close and personal way. Feel free to engage with our experienced guides, they are sure to keep you entertained with exceptional knowledge on the Kruger Park as well as stories about their past experiences, all whilst tracking magnificent animals on foot. Please note: Bush walks need to be booked through our reservations team in advance.
No game drive is complete without taking time to slow down and celebrate the environment you’re in – stopping in the middle of the Park for coffee in the morning, or sundowners in the evening.
Muffins, rusks and warm drinks are offered in the restaurant before the early morning game activity.
Unique to the location of the Lodge is our exquisite granite rock formation, located within our perimeters, and a short walk from your tent.
Take a walk up to nature’s perfectly elevated viewpoint and breathe in the 360 panoramic views of the Kruger Park. This is the ultimate spot to take in the beauty of the landscape.
Contact our team to book a private picnic, sundowners – or a truly unforgettable proposal!

Choose from our curated coffee and drinks menu, sit back and watch the elephants, giraffes, warthogs just meters from the fence – you might catch the herd of over 200 buffalo who often come past!

After your morning game drive or bush walk, we invite you back to the lodge to enjoy a scrumptious breakfast in the restaurant, with views overlooking the Park.
