Wildlife

We do not have fences and have left nature intact as much as possible. Therefore wild animals are free to come and go

We see vervet monkeys in the trees and shrubs around the tents and hear the many species of birds chattering with one another while visiting our small drinking pools. Also dikdiks often come for a drink.

Around us we often spot zebras, impalas and grant gazelles, and an abundance of small wildlife like mongoose and if you're lucky you can spot genet cats

Birdlife
