Imagine. A veteran male leopard catching a late afternoon snooze on a nearby termite mound. Complimented by skirting hyena and an eerie ambience, one cannot but feel slightly small. A few vocalizations reverberate throughout our souls, sending chills down our spines. The leopard feels an instinctual urge to let all know that it is here. Imagine Africa.
Undulating rivers and scenic watering holes host an eclectic array of Big 5 and other keystone species, such as pods of hippo and crocodile. Frequenting elephants often provide an intimate viewing experience.
Along with over 30 mammal species, from towers of giraffe to dazzles of zebra, iconic predators such as cheetah and wild dog also occur and are often a treat for the prospective safari-goer.
The safari falls within a sub-tropical Lowveld eco-zone, which boasts an impressive biodiversity in both fauna and flora. With over 336 documented tree species in the region, ranging from ancient Baobabs to the iconic Marula, the dominant woody savannah is accentuated with plenty to see and accommodates an impressive diversity of bird life.
For the avid birder there are over 220 documented species to be found. Various raptors, such as the endangered Lappet-Faced Vulture, Pel’s Fishing Owl, and Martial Eagle, can be observed. This extends to larger birds, such as the Southern Ground Hornbill, Kori Bustard, and Saddle-Billed Stork, amongst a plethora of other species.
A large BIG 5 traverse allows for scenic game drive / safaris and ample opportunity for excitement around every corner.
