A day in the life of

private game reserve
south african safari


05h30 is departure time on the morning South African safari game drive and very soon you are in the heart of the wild. Zebra, wildebeest, giraffe and a host of antelope are on the move before the heat of the sun forces them back into the undergrowth. An elegant table with homemade muffins is set up and the edge is taken off appetites, but not enough to spoil breakfast – don’t forget to ask for the ELEPHANT ROCK SPECIAL.

Then, back in the vehicle to continue tracking the Big 5 – back to the lodge for a sumptuous breakfast on the deck with all the trimmings. A few hours to recover – enjoy a quick nap in your suite or lounge by the pool with a glass of ice-cold refreshment.


In no time, it is time for a light lunch.

The complimentary Coffee & Tea station with homemade biscuits is always available for a nibble.

Perhaps the pod of hippos warming themselves on the shores of the dam, or the herd of Elephant will be our first sighting.

Before long it is sundowner time. What is better than a few cold drinks in the middle of the African bush? Dusk is fast approaching and it is back to the lodge.

On arrival at the lodge the friendly staff are ready to welcome you back with a Sherry and a warm towel.


Pre-dinner drinks at 7pm around the fire in the boma and an exquisitely presented dinner at one of our spectacular venues; round off a wonderful
day in the African bushveld.
