A Typical Day ... on Safari

12:00 pm Arrive at the Game Reserve reception for check-in, and enjoy a refreshing welcome fruit cocktail.
12:15 pm Make yourself comfortable in your private, luxurious thatched chalet complete with air-conditioning, mosquito netting, and beautifully appointed en-suite bathroom.
1:00 pm Join the other guests and staff on the Lodge Patio for a drink before Lunch. Absorb the superb view of the River and Camp Clearing, keeping an eye out for wildlife meandering by.
1:30 pm An array of culinary delights awaits you at the lunch buffet, served under a Jackalberry Tree on the lodge lawn. There is always something to please every taste, and do remember to leave space for the delicious dessert or a bowl of fresh, tropical fruit salad.
2:00 pm Spend the afternoon at leisure – visit the curio shop, work out in the gym relax at the pool or enjoy a beauty treatment at the Health Spa.
4:00 pm An African drum beat announces tea, coffee and light refreshments served on the Patio.
4:15 pm At last! It is time to depart on the afternoon / evening game drive in search of the game you have dreamed about. Your experienced Safari Team will put their professional skills to test in order to locate the legendary Big 5 and other fascinating wildlife. You may have the opportunity to view some impressive antelope including kudu, nyala and waterbuck as well as some of the majestic birds of prey such as the fish eagle, yellow-billed kite and gymnogene.
Sundowner drinks and snacks are served whilst you take in the beauty of a classic African sunset over the bushveld.
As the night sets in, there is a chance to view big cats such as lion and leopard on the hunt, and some unusual nocturnal creatures including porcupine, civit and white-tailed mongoose may also be seen.
7:15 pm Return to the Lodge to freshen up and meet in the bar to reminisce over the excitement of the safari.
7:45 pm Explore the walk-in wine cellar in order to select a top quality South African wine to complement your dinner.
8:00 pm A large appetite is required for the sumptuous, typically South African dinner served in the open-air Boma around the campfire. Savor the chef’s gourmet dishes under the clear starlit sky.
10:00 pm A nightcap around the fire is recommended before being escorted back to your chalet, to be soothed to sleep by the sounds of lions calling in the distance.

The Following Day …

5:30 am Wake-up call.
6:00 am Tea, coffee and light snacks are served on the Patio. Watch the sun rise over the endless African savannah.
6:15 am The fresh dawn air brings with it the promise of another adventurous safari and – you never know – maybe a glimpse of a cheetah or the rare wild dog – at this time of the day, game activity is at its peak.
7:00 am Return to the Lodge for a hearty breakfast served on the Patio.
10:30 am Explore the savannah’s flora and fauna on foot!
The bush walk focuses on the ecology, geology and flora of the area, as well as the small bush inhabitants, including insects and birds. One can also discover the interesting and unique world of trees, grasses and flowers – of course, occasionally big game can be seen on walks - including elephants, rhinos, giraffes, and buffaloes.
For those who prefer a more relaxing alternative, game and bird viewing from the River Deck is an option, or a selection of wildlife books and videos can be enjoyed in the Lounge.
Seasons differ vastly in the African bushveld, but no season can be rated above another one as each has its own unique appeal. Spring (September) and autumn (April) are very short seasons in close proximity to the Tropics, and usually provide milder weather conditions and subtle changes in vegetation. Summer (October to March) tends to be hot, but the bush looks wonderfully green and lush.
Many mammals produce their offspring in the height of summer (December, January) and the youngsters are a special treat on safaris. The winter months (May to August) bring drier, more temperate weather condition. These months are ideal for game watching as the trees do not carry leaves and animals can be spotted a lot easier in their natural habitat.
