Had such a great experience. The game runs were amazing, everyone is so in tune with nature! Clean rooms, wonderful polite service, outstanding food! I do wish that there was maybe an optional afternoon activity since there is some down time in between meals and drives. Other then that it was perfect!!! Very cute dogs and cats on the property!...

This was my first stay at a safari camp and I absolutely loved every second of it - the team was lovely and very helpful. They organised everything (Transport to/from Joburg, pickup, etc) and were very attentive in general. I would have loved to stay longer and will definitely consider coming back. Thanks everyone for a fantastic experience.

Sunrise and sunset safaris in open 4x4 vehicles are the highlights of the day.The Safari Camp:Our African safari-styled tents are nestled in between Marula, Knobthorn Acacia and Sausage Trees and overlook a dry river bed, the bush and the Northern Drakensberg Mountains. Each tent is spacious and built in an elevated position with it's own special view. The tents are fully furnished and have their own private deck and ensuite bathroom with a bath and outdoor shower. Inverter or Eco based Air-conditioners are fitted in each tent ensuring that you stay cool during those warm summer nights... and can even be set to warm during those colder nights in winter.
