Today is a day of excitement. Get up early, have a cup of coffee and then set out on a sunrise guided walk, where your field guide will teach you some of the secrets of nature. After this enriching experience will you return to the main camp for a delicious brunch. You have the next few hours at leisure and can explore the bush and water streams at your own pace. Feeling energetic? Then try one of the other activities on offer at the lodge, like mountain biking, hiking or bass fishing, before we get ready for the highlight of the day – a sunset game drive where you will search for animals such as the big 5 (elephant, lion, rhino, leopard, buffalo) and many more. You return in time for dinner and enjoy a pleasant evening around the fire in the boma.
