Highlights

  • Game Viewing

    Game viewing here is superb, guided by some of the highest qualified rangers and trackers in the Kruger.

  • Private Plunge Pools

    The suites are simply exquisite, each with their own private plunge pool and gazebo.

  • The Spa

    Simply the best spa we've seen in any safari lodge. You could quite easily spend the entire day up there.

  • The Food

    Head chef John Jackson continues to produce incredible cuisine on a daily basis. Our favourite dining experience has to be the Bedouin tent in the middle of the bush.
