Please note: Our review of this property has not yet been added. Watch this space. We're working on it.

As a tailor-made tour operator, we often have to get creative when designing your perfect itinerary.

For example, your travel consultant might add this property to your itinerary if:

Location is a significant factor
It offers a unique feature that will enhance your experience
This is a last-minute booking and room availability is limited
Cost is a factor and you'd rather splash out on another part of your trip
This is a newly opened or refurbished property that we have not inspected yet

When designing your custom itinerary we have much to consider not least of which is the value proposition of every product and service included in your quote. In all cases we strive to give you the best experience possible within your budget so please feel free to ask your travel consultant to share their reasons for including this property in your itinerary.

Wake up to a red glow from the sand dunes which surround this lodge and its 12 en-suite chalets. Natural materials like thatch, wood and reeds help to keep each room cool, especially in the summer when temperatures can reach 45°C. The swimming pool and shaded areas between the chalets offer some respite from the sun, when you get back from a day of animal spotting in the reserve.

The main lodge area and restaurant overlook a waterhole where giraffe, zebra and antelope come to drink. Make sure you take the time to see the enclosure which houses the two Kalahari lions, a predator which has recently been reintroduced to the reserve as part of their conservation efforts.

One of the distinguishing factors of this lodge is that you get to explore the bushveld with a San Bushman. Introducing you to the culture and way of life of this almost forgotten people, like hand-made weapon demonstrations, a look at some medicinal plants found in this area and animal tracking techniques – you will get some insight into what it takes to live in this harsh terrain.

Game viewing is done on foot or in 4x4 vehicles, which is a great mode of transport in the sandy Kalahari.
