Choices of early morning, afternoon, and night drives are on offer, affording you the opportunity to explore this beautiful desert area well known for sightings of the Kalahari Lion. Occasional sightings of leopard, cheetah, and perhaps the rare opportunity of spotting the elusive Brown Hyena that frequents the area are the order of the day. Regular sightings of antelope species, such as oryx, blue wildebeest, eland, and not to mention the smaller mammals like the black backed jackal or ground squirrel to name a few. The area also allows for excellent bird watching, with over 250 bird species positively identified.
Another way to explore the surrounding area is on foot, led by resident San People who will take you on an authentic, adventurous, and informative guided walk. The walk is a journey into the past of these gentle people, where they will impart information of their ancient culture and how they once survived in these harsh and arid conditions. Being great story tellers, you will be taken back in time as they reminisce on how they once lived. They will also share their knowledge of the smaller creatures, as well as the fauna and flora of the Kalahari. The walks are done at a pace you are comfortable with and a truly peaceful way to get closer to the environment.
For the more adventurous, let your senses be pricked by the smells, sounds, and sights of the Kalahari, as you enjoy a guided quad bike safari. Quad bike safaris are done at a slow pace around the lodge and are only applicable to children 16 years and older at the lodge manager's discretion.
After a full day of activities and a delectable dinner, nothing beats taking a drive to the elevated star gazing deck, where on a clear night, the Kalahari sky comes alive, showing off brilliant stars and crystal clear views of the Milky Way.

The camp is positioned twelve kilometers’s north of the Khwai River, within Cathedral Mopane forest overlooking a natural Mopane Pan. The pan is a constant water supply to many species of birds and animals year round, the rains in December to March flood the area creating an enormous water feature encouraging hippo, elephant, and buffalo and an exceptional array of water birds, as the pan shrinks from March through to late November, they pump water to the pan from your close by borehole. The water from the borehole is slightly salty with high mineral content, a big attraction to the resident game and bird species in the concession. The pan is a hive of activity year round.
