The main lodge is a common area where our guests are invited to put their feet up, browse the internet to get in touch with family and friends, have a cocktail or cup of coffee, and simply relax while surrounded by the sights and sounds of the African bushveld. From the main lodge, you can also gaze out to our dam, a wetland of sorts where animals come to drink water. The superbly kept swimming pool is just a footstep or two away, and it's hard to resist the invitation to take a dip and cool down; take the plunge, surrounded by comfortable chairs under bushveld trees. Swimming towels are available at the pool.The camp also has its own curio shop with a wide range of African arts and curios, as well as branded apparel. Most items are crafted by local artists in the area and the prices are very reasonable. The curio shop is situated next to reception, and is open all day.
