Wake up early for a steaming cup of coffee under jackalberry trees before setting out on early morning game drives to track the Big 5 and other classic animals. Return for a hearty breakfast on the deck enjoying the view of the Sand River. Set out on a guided safari walk to get closer to this incredible ecosystem but you may prefer to spend the heat of the day relaxing around the swimming pool or enjoying a massage on your private deck.

Mid-afternoon high tea is served on the deck, after which you head off on your afternoon game drives. Enjoy sundowner drinks in the bush and listen to the soft hum of the crickets as the stars appear. Return to camp for a delicious outdoor dinner around the boma, listening to bush stories from the past and learning more about the local Shangaan culture.
