Safari Tents

Along side our Main Lodge building, we have 2 Safari Tents which over look the Olifants River. Our Safari tents are basic & comfortably appointed. The Tents consist of a double bed, fan, side tables & side lights, a plug point and a small patio looking onto the Olifants River. Linen and Towels are provided. 

The Bathroom is communal, shared between a maximum of 4 guests (2 tents) and is 30m from the tent platform. 


Wi-Fi is available throughout the property - FREE of charge and can be accessed in the tents. 


The lodge itself has a communal kitchen with a tea/coffee station, a wonderful outside seating area, as well an indoor dining room, bar and lounge for our guests to enjoy.

There is a small splash pool available to cool you down during those summer days!

Sit back, relax, & enjoy viewing animals coming down to drink at the river or watch birds feed in our two magnificent sycamore fig trees.
