There are no predators on the Estate, which is perfect for walking, driving and mountain biking among the game. There are two elevated thatched hides overlooking water holes on a perennial stream that runs from the main gate in the west and flows due east towards the Kruger National Park. South of this stream the reserve extends for a further 5000 hectares of wildlife game protection area. At night the nocturnal wildlife is just as plentiful. The whoop of the black backed jackal is as loud as the millions of stars in the Milky Way are bright. If you sit outside at the fireside with the lodge lights dimmed you can expect regular visits from porcupines and warthogs while locating the bark of the male impalas in the dark. The Buffalo can be extremely short tempered and dangerous and should not be approached on foot. Exercise caution when moving past them in your vehicle.
