My phone took me so far – yet could go no further.

Suddenly our lives are a series of virtual connections. A dystopia. Data is oxygen. Our homes are our new offices. Our kitchens the latest local restaurant. Our fellow housemates become our only tangible social contact. Less noise. No traffic. And in the quiet, we zoom, cast and scroll – transporting ourselves to far-reaching realities through social media, Netflix, and YouTube; to cooking courses in Rome; museum tours in Washington; Disney rides in Orlando; and live safaris in the Kruger National Park. We naturally thrive on adventure, and are now forced to live vicariously through the possibilities of technology.

Our technology has become our conduit to the world beyond our front door, but how magical can that carpet ride be without feeling the wind in your hair? How immersive can your couch safari be without feeling the strain in your neck from staring up at the African night sky, the heat of the boma fire on the palms of your hands, the smell of the bush after the rain, the midnight calls of the lion cutting through the night air, the branches snapping as the elephants emerge just meters away.

This is us. We are human. We evolve, invent, disrupt. But more than anything, we feel. We feel through our senses. We feel through our shared experiences and collective journeys. Kuhamba kubona – travelling opens one’s eyes (Siswati proverb).

We will travel again, and feed our souls by feeding our senses. It’s in our blood. And until technology is able to transport us to this multi-sensory dimension, there’s just nothing like the real thing. We’re ready when you are.

In line with Government and hospitality industry regulations, we have made sure to leave no stone unturned to ensure safety and impeccable cleanliness throughout the lodge and its facilities – front and back of house.

Rest assured, we have spared no details in ensuring safe hygienic surroundings for our guests, and our team. With all the safety precautions in place, you are free to kick back and relax, and allow all your stresses to fade away.

Our brand new lodge is uniquely designed in that:
Each luxury tent is positioned at a distance of at least 15m from the adjacent tent, with a private access walkway and private patio.
The open architecture of the public areas allows for fresh air flows and expansive spaces to be very comfortably socially distanced from other guests.
