There is a range of exciting activities for non-hunters
such as daily game drives, bird-watching and casual
hiking. Outdoor camping expeditions can be arranged
for the more adventurous guests. An abundance of fauna
and flora together with over 300 species of birds on
the reserve make it the perfect opportunity for nature
lovers to practice their photographic skills.
Sundowner cruises, water skiing, canoeing, swimming
and fishing on our Zandrivierspoort dam are particularly
popular activities. The spectacular sunsets and birdlife
such as the African fish eagle, kingfishers, ducks and
storks are all part of this Bushveld paradise.
The camp staff will be happy to organise outings to
nearby Sun City, Mabula Game Reserve and Marakeli National
Park, which has the largest Cape vulture colony in the
world. Johannesburg and Pretoria are an easy 2 hours'
drive, while regular trips are made into Thabazimbi
where there are jewellery and curio shops.
For those planning to explore beyond our borders, Botswana
and Zimbabwe are on our doorstep!
There are numerous dams and waterholes and several
strategically placed blinds ensure that there is plenty
for the hunter, photographer, nature lover or outdoor
enthusiast to see and experience.
Over the years, the eland, waterbuck, red hartebees,
blue wildebees, kudu, and impala, have bred prolifically
so that large herds are encountered frequently on hunting
expeditions and game drives. The "population explosion"
has resulted in fairly regular sightings of leopard
in broad daylight!
