Delicious bush cuisine, fireside fare, and personal service at all times.
You decide what your day`s activities:
- Birding with a professional experienced guide offering close to 300 species of birds;
- or exciting game drives tracking the leopards through the valley bushveld and mountain protea veld;
- explore through the archeological ruins and artifacts from ancient indigenous peoples, wandering traders as well as early settlers;
- or relax on the deck of your tent or at the pool, with your feet up, hidden away in this haven of peace and tranquillity.
There is always a friendly face to welcome you to the bar lounge, and a fire for chilly days.
In the evenings, with a canopy of stars above and goosebump views, enjoy a sundowner out in the bush or around the fire on the deck at camp. After a sumptious dinner, and night cap, retire to your luxury tent and kingsize beds, from where you may be lucky to hear the call of the Leopard reverberate through the cliffs surrounding the camp.
