Sixteen spacious suites are divided into three camps that orbit the comfortable living area. Rusty hues of brown and orange merge with the timber and thatch chalets – inspired by the anthills that characterise the rocky savannah plains of the Madikwe Game Reserve. Each suite has a separate living area, an open fireplace, a spacious dressing area with a mini bar, an en suite bathroom with additional outdoor shower and a private plunge pool on the secluded deck.

The main lodge is casual and relaxed with fireplaces dotted all over the show, a pizza oven, a covered deck padded with beanbags and scatter cushions; the swimming pool and sundeck look out over the endless African bush. Dinner is served in the evocative open-air boma by the light of a campfire and hurricane lamps.

Game viewing  is exceptional. The famed Big 5 plus cheetah and a large population of wild dog offer plenty of exciting game drives while the big game, hordes of antelope and smaller creatures are a diverse representation of the various habitats in the region.

Birdlife is also spectacular with over 350 recorded species, rare pairings and several Kalahari specials: Namaqua and double-banded sand-grouse, Kalahari and white-browed scrub-robins, red-eyed and dark-capped bulbuls, and arrow-marked and southern pied babblers.
