The lodge is an ideal destination for those seeking privacy, exclusivity, tranquility and adventure.

The secluded and spacious lodge, which overlooks a panoramic landscape, is open aired and light with thatch insulation against the African summer heat. Fireplaces are strategically positioned throughout the lodge to keep you warm against the winter chill.
