Brunch is enjoyed on the veranda after returning from your early-morning activity and dinner is served under the stars in the traditional African boma (outdoor enclosure).
Your expert ranger will teach you about the habits of the Elephant and the Rhinoceros, and how to identify the ferocious little Ant-lion and the giant Dung Beetle. For the more adventurous the lodge offers a great way to get close to nature on game walks under the guidance of an armed game ranger.
