A another highlight is a walk up the Sacred Rock of Klein Bolayi - the enormous granite outcrop behind our lodge, which gave our lodge its name. The rock is one of the largest of its kind and plays an important role in the mythology and history of the local people.
A rock fig tree growing out of the side of the gigantic rock has become a landmark of the area and has been depicted many times in a multitude of publications.
