All three of our accommodation options give guests the opportunity to completely immerse themselves in nature, lead by passionate and experienced guides.

Food is our passion and with a beautiful organic garden on site, an airy barn style Bush Kitchen to visit and even our very own cook book, our guests will not go hungry here!  With fresh organic fruit and vegetables, meat and milk all from the land, we are at your disposal when it comes to hearty, healthy fare.  Any special dietary needs our guests may require including Gluten Free, Vegan, Vegetarian meals are all available here. 


The Lodge team hosts Wellness Retreats all year round with various practitioners from around the world.  We also have a small Bush Spa, overlooking the river, where our team can offer relaxing massage and rejuvenating body treatments using organic essential oils made in our region. Why not check in to the spa while the children are in Bush School and reset your mind and body on safari.
