The Lodge offers a shaded viewing deck, an al fresco dining area and swimming pool – ideal for watching the wildlife below – including the resident Elephants – as they make their way to the Channel to drink, bathe and play.

Venture out into the wildlife-rich marshes. if you want to delve deeper into the history of the area then visit the ancient San Rock paintings at Gubatsa Hills.
