Galago Camp - Djuma Game Reserve Activities:
Djuma’s biggest draw-card is essentially the wild and untamed surrounds into which its guests can explore. This part of Africa has seen such a slight human imprint that the land is still governed by legendary animals like the Big-5: lion, leopard, rhino, buffalo and elephant. Activities are endless in the divine South African climate with 7000 hectares of wilderness on your doorstep. The flexibility of Galago’s schedule allows guests to make up their own activities schedule.
Morning and Evening Game Drives:
A tracker and qualified ranger will take you through the reserve in specially designed game-drive vehicles, and do their utmost to deliver the finest game viewing opportunities.
After a hearty breakfast, a bushwalk with one of our experienced rangers offers the opportunity to take a closer look at your wild surrounds. Discover unexpected surprises like a chameleon perched on a tree branch, or view the thousands of birds that roam Djuma’s skies.

We were fortunate to be a party of just 6 so we all could enjoy the luxury of the three chalets. For groups bigger than six some will have to sleep in the lodge, not bad but not to the same standard of the chalets. Game drives were great and we saw it all, including lions feeding on a kill, plenty leopards and even the rare wild dog showed up. Compliments to the tracking skills of Aubrey and William, not only from us but from fellow rangers of other lodges too. One of the sightings found by Aubrey and William was rated 10 out of 10 by them as well. In fact at least one other vehicle was unable to reach it. We felt like royalty with all the little touches like early morning coffee, fire burning after the evening game drive, beds turned down and everything spic and span and in good working order. Djuma was not our forts experience with a self catering lodge but its among the best. Thanks to the Djuma team.
