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.
Accommodation rates range from moderate to high depending on lodge standards and location in relation to the best game viewing areas.
Fly in charter options exist but most visitors prefer to drive from Johannesburg as it is only 4 hours away.
