The lodge’s comfortable guest areas offer the perfect vantage point for viewing the abundant bird life. In the surrounding trees and the wildlife roaming the bush below. This is an intimate lodge; where guests are treated like treasured family members and time is shared with fellow safari adventurers; who soon become friends.

Witness striking, fiery sunsets from the game viewing deck; suspended over the landscape below. Delicious meals are served in the dining area or on the rooftop. Or delight in an unforgettable bush banquet under the African night sky.
