Conservation & Community Projects

Take your safari to a deeper level of understanding and appreciation of Africa’s wild spaces and culture we have tailor-made “Purpose Driven Safaris" for groups and families.

Game Drives

Early morning game drives set out at the crack of dawn with one of our guides, both into the park or on our 15000acre private concession.

Mornings are usually productive with possible sightings of Hyena, Leopard, Wild Dog and the plains game.

Afternoon drives in the same areas leave at around 3pm and return by spotting torch by night. Animals and birds seen in the afternoon are prolific with sometime close encounters with the famous, majestic herd of Presidential Elephants.

Hide Sits & Treetop platforms

Our underground Hide and Tree platform-

Now this is the focal point; with 180-degree views of sunrise and sunset, the sunken hide is positioned
for optimum photography. It is punctuated by 1000 termite mounds and is frequented daily by
resident herds of elephant, buffalo and sable.

Wine, beers and soft drinks are available and accessible all day from the built-in fridge and in cold
winter evenings, this is a wonderful space to sit being warmed by the indoor fireplace
However, If you’re more inclined to enjoy the breeze in your hair, above the Sidule Hide is the
viewing platform, guarded from the sun by leafy teak trees and set with bean bags for longer viewing
opportunities, another favorite space for our photographers. Lying up here the views of the massive
vlei sprawling out in front of you is breathtaking. In the East, looking right you will see the sun and
moon rising. Looking left to the West you will watch the sun setting in all its glory.

We’ve taken the idea of ‘hiding out’ to a level where wildlife approaches you naturally - making this the
place for the nature purist .... in its purest form. We have also constructed habitually blended wood
blinds and viewing decks on the concession where photographers can sit, in a camouflaged space and
wait for that epic shot.
