The lodge’s immediate surroundings have an abundance of the most impressive wildlife that can be found in the Sabi Sand Reserve, and guests can be almost guaranteed of complete Big Five sightings on every game drive. All game drives are operated by experienced rangers and trackers who love to interact with guests and share their vast knowledge. Not only will you experience some vivid animal sightings and encounters on game drives, but at the lodge too – no need to even move away from your suite! Right in front of the lodge are a series of waterholes that are very popular for wildlife, especially during the dryer winter season. Elephants in particular, will visit these waterholes on a daily basis. Nearby the lodge as well, are several dams that attract wildlife and birds, and add beauty to the area.
