A uniquely specialised event, not normally permitted within the boundaries of the National Parks and Reserves, is a night game drive, the ultimate safari luxury experience. Leaving the Lodge either before or after dinner set off to discover the creatures of the night. The night is the exclusive domain of the hunters such as leopards and lions. It is the only time when you may catch a glimpse of such elusive nocturnal creatures as aardvark, aardwolf, and Lumo’s melanistic serval cat. Your vehicle will be equipped with a powerful handheld lamp used to sweep the bush for sightings. Children over 5 years of age are welcome and really enjoy this exciting glimpse, of what happens around them when they are usually in bed.

We share packets with seed balls to each guest that can be launched into the conservancy using a slingshot. A seed ball is essentially a seed encased in a mixture of clay and compost, which is then dried. This technique dates back to ancient times, potentially utilized by the Ancient Egyptians sow seeds along the retreating banks of the Nile after annual floods. This method is widely employed in Asia and other regions, particularly in arid areas, due to its effectiveness in safeguarding seeds until conditions are favorable for germination, as well as its ease of distribution. Ask our receptionists for your seed balls and slingshot!
A snare is a simple yet effective trap designed to capture or restrain animals. Typically consisting of a noose, wire, or other flexible material, snares are set to tighten around the prey when triggered, securing it in place. Poachers commonly use snares for hunting or trapping purposes. De-snaring involves removing snares set by poachers, which severely threaten the local wildlife. You can join our rangers on guided excursions through the surrounding areas, actively searching for and disarming snares.
