HIGHLIGHTS

Game viewing and birding in semi-arid savanna typical of the dry western part of South Africa. Habitat is well preserved and supports the ‘Big Five’ mammals as well as African Wild Dog, Brown and Spotted Hyena as well as Cheetah.

BEST TIME OF THE YEAR

Winter months from May to August are normally wind free with warm sunny days and cool star studded nights. Game viewing is best at this time of year with good bush visibility and a tendency for the animals to frequent the waterholes at regular intervals.

BUDGET

Accommodation rates range from moderate to high depending on lodge standards and location in relation to the best game viewing areas.

GETTING THERE

Fly in charter options exist but most visitors prefer to drive from Johannesburg as it is only 4 hours away.

THINGS TO DO

Driving about at leisure in search of wildlife is the main attraction.

Bird watching is varied and interesting with over 350 species recorded.

African Wild Dog and Cheetah sightings are iconic highlights.

Enjoying an evening meal around the camp fire under clear night skies is a special experience.

Walking in the bush in the company of a highly trained field guide is an enlightening and memorable experience.

WHERE TO STAY

Tented camps and lodges vary in size and location as well as ambiance from rustic Africa of old to contemporary safari style designs. Choice is one of personal preference and cost considerations.
