Manager’s Report April 2015

April was another wonderful month at the lodge. We had some rain and the bush and surrounds have transformed from pale brown to a slightly greener colour. One can still see that we are heading into winter though. Game viewing was magical and we had many groups at the lodge this month. I am sure that everyone enjoyed the awesome sightings. Now that winter is creeping up on us, we have changed our daily schedule at...

Manager’s Report December 2014

Wild photo of the month December was a great month to end the year. We had lovely animal sightings, shared happiness and laughter over the festivities of Christmas and New Year’s and just before we said our last goodbyes to 2014, we received a heavy downpour of rain. This was our first heavy rains for the season and we welcomed it with open arms. The rain we received was just enough to turn the dry Manyeleti River...
