Set under shady African trees lining the seasonal Monwana River, the Lodge features superior suites with privacy and luxurious comfort in mind, comprised of a bedroom and lounge, en-suite bathroom, large glass sliding doors and private viewing decks with a view over the ever active water hole. Standard amenities include overhead fans and air-conditioning as well as open fireplaces for the cooler winters, and designer "picture window" bathroom suites providing a romantic African atmosphere.

Enjoy the unspoiled nature of the African bushveld with its dramatic vistas in the comfort and luxury of your superior suite. Your knowledgeable and experienced ranger conducts professional early morning and late afternoon / evening game drives in an informative and relaxed fashion in fully equipped custom built game viewing vehicles. Your qualified ranger will be happy to share all their knowledge of the bush - from the prized big five (leopard, lion, buffalo, elephant, rhino) to the smaller game, plants, trees, insects and more.
