After a few hours of exploration, photography and education, you will return to the lodge for a mouth-watering, well-earned, fresh-made breakfast.

Continue your day after lunch with an exciting afternoon game drive.

Out on the open reserves, trace across new lands as you gain a deeper and more intimate understanding of the South African bushveld before returning to the lodge for another fantastic dinner.
