Safari Experience

An early morning wake up starts the day with a quick, hearty breakfast of porridge/cereal, muffins, fruit, tea or coffee.  Then you head out on your activity with your guide.

Activities offered are game drives and bush walks with a professional guide. Morning activities end around 11am, making way for brunch.

Then it’s relaxation time in camp, making use of the main areas, swimming in the pool or relaxing in your own tent overlooking the productive waterhole.

Tea is served around 3.30pm with an array of savoury and sweet food. The afternoon activities offered are game drives and bush walks with a professional guide, and usually ends with sundowner drinks at a special spot.

Return to camp is about 7.30 – 8.oo pm for dinner. Communal dining gives the opportunity to talk to your guide and other guests. Private dining is also available to anyone.

After dinner enjoy a coffee or liqueur by the fire before bed.

Activity times and meal times are flexible as we work around the guests preferences.

Wildlife & Birdlife

Hwange National Park is a Big 5 area boasting over 100 mammal species, over 400 bird species which include up to 50 raptors.  Large herds of elephant and buffalo are a common sighting.

Lion sightings are frequent, with leopard and cheetah sightings a little less so. Special sightings include the Bat Eared Fox and Painted Hunting Dogs.

Added Extras

A chance for 2 people to sleep out in the Dove’s Nest, which is a tree house sleep out away from camp.

Private dining is available especially for couples/families celebrating a special occasion.

Bush breakfasts, lunches and dinners can be arranged on request or by the management as a surprise.

We have two “underground hides” strategically placed around and very close to our waterhole.

These Hides offer an excellent opportunity to get “up close and personal” with the wildlife and offer amazing photographic opportunities.
