A walk on the wild side

The Woodlands

A little woodland camp, where impala and bushbuck graze and birds drink at the waterholes. This is a wild space where you sit around the evening fire listening to the sounds of nature.   And you don’t leave your tent at night in case you inadvertently meet Mr Hippo grazing your personal lawn - you just wake up in the morning and look out and think 'was he really so close?'.  Imagine!

Wild at Heart

We are privileged to have wild woodlands where an abundant supply of water attracts birds and small mammals.  Impala and bushbuck graze here, and a wide variety of birds find safety for feeding, drinking, nesting.

 

We created The Woodlands for birders who want peace and quiet to sit among the trees and observe, but it’s proved so popular that we have opened it to those wanting that special wilderness feeling without sacrificing comfort and luxury.

Guests have the service of a butler/groundsman/guard 24/7.  Breakfast is served on the Woodlands lounge veranda where you can also keep cool in the heat of the day, invite friends made at the lodge for a surprise drink, or just sit and watch the birds go by.   

The Waterberry restaurant, sun decks and swimming pool, all used by Woodlanders, are a short walk down sandy paths.
