  • A king-size bed
  • En-suite bathroom
  • In addition to your en-suite bathroom, a glorious and entirely private outdoor shower (there being few things as satisfying as a steaming shower beneath the African stars)
  • Your own private patio-deck with recliners

Marula Suite

Named after the wild tree that bears the bushveld’s most delicious fruit, Marula Suite gazes over a low valley toward one of the waterholes, with its coming-and-going of elephants and other game. Besides all of Naledi’s standard luxury amenities, Marula’s particular features include:

  • A luxurious en-suite bathroom that will take your breath away. Choose between languishing in a luxurious bath whilst overlooking the views from your window, an indoor shower looking out over your private piece of the African bush, or enjoy experiencing an entirely secluded outdoor shower under the African stars.

Program

A day on a wildlife safari with Naledi

The big five, and indeed most of the other wild species, are at their most active in the early morning and late afternoon. These hours are also the most atmospheric for game viewing from an open vehicle. So, the rhythm of a day on safari follows the rhythms of the bush: rising early for your first game drive, relaxing from mid-morning to mid-afternoon, then getting active again – with another game drive – as evening approaches.

The schedule that follows will give you a sense of the daily rhythm at Naledi during the African summer months (October through to April). In winter (May through to September), all the scheduled times shift forward half an hour; so, you would, for example, be woken up at 5:30 a.m. for your game drive, instead of 5:00 a.m.

  • 05:00 There’s a discreet knock on your door from your lodge manager to suggest it’s time to wake up for your game drive.
  • 05:45 You gather with fellow guests in the lounge area to enjoy tea or coffee with cookies before your game drive.
  • 06:00 You depart on your game drive in an open safari vehicle, with your expert Naledi guide at the wheel and a tracker riding up front. Typically, the atmosphere at departure is both expectant and congenial. There will be at the very most seven other guests on your vehicle, so it’s an entirely natural and easy space in which to chat with fellow guests.
  • 09:00 You’re home for breakfast – ideally with some delightful game sightings stored both in your mind and on your camera.
  • 09:30 Breakfast is served on your lodge’s main breakfast deck. Seated around a single large table, guests share their impressions from the morning drive.
  • 10:30 With breakfast over, you might wish to relax until lunchtime in one of the game hides, take a game walk, enjoy a spa treatment, or just bliss out beside the pool with a good book.
  • 14:30 Lunch is served.
  • 15:30 You depart on your afternoon-into-evening game drive. Midway through this drive, your guide will pull over into a scenic spot; here, you’ll disembark from the vehicle for sun-downers and snacks, and might survey one of the exquisite sunsets. Later, driving through the fragrant bushveld dusk, your guide or tracker will use a power-lamp to reveal passing game. Should you so wish, your guide will also pause and momentarily switch off the lights and engine to enhance your experience of the glittering African starscapes and the deep stillness of the bush at night.
  • 20:00 You’re home from the evening game drive, in good time to freshen up before dinner.
  • 20:30 Dinner is served, with fine cuisine and pleasant company making this meal a memorable experience in its own right.

Notes: Balule Private Reserve entry fees (a per vehicle fee and per person conservation fee) are not included in the price. While these fees are generally regarded as being very moderate, they do change from time to time, and cost-conscious guests should send an inquiry to Naledi Game Lodge to ascertain the exact amount.

Private bookings of safari vehicles are also not included in the price. If you would like to book a private safari vehicle for exclusive use by your party, please contact Naledi for rates and terms.
