Big 5 Safaris

Our guests regularly see the “Big 5”: lion, elephant, leopard, rhino and buffalo. We also have frequent sightings of rare species like cheetah, African wild dog, and brown hyena. All this in a malaria-free wilderness.

This is the safari experience that you’ll keep talking about.

Stay in our Luxury Suites

You’ll stay in one of our luxury suites, which were constructed in harmony with nature and were designed to immerse guests in the bush. Watch animals walk to the waterhole on the game paths in front of your deck. Wake up to the dawn chorus of birdlife, and—with a bit of luck—to lions calling or hyenas “laughing.”

Dining with a View

We welcome guests with all dietary requirements, including kosher and halal.

You will love our main dining area, a covered deck offering a panoramic view of the Etali Waterhole and surrounding hills. We host “boma” dinners at our second deck at ground level. Dine by a roaring fire, under the stars, whilst seeing which animals are visiting the close-by waterhole.

Wellness Centre

The bush has an uncanny ability to relax your mind. Enjoy a treatment at our Wellness Centre to relax your body. Find calm and relief with our massages, body wraps and facials, performed by professional therapists.
