Our Lodge:

Our hunting lodges are located in the heart of the Fish River Bushveld, surrounded by evergreen thickets and valleys, which present a unique and ideal hunting experience.


Hunting camp has 8 double bungalows and the main lodge is equipped with a well-stocked bar, terrace, and spacious dining room and kitchen.

All hunting lodges are fully equipped with green energy from solar panels, flush latrines and hot and cold running water and all the necessary modern conveniences in the heart of the bush. The hunting lodges offer a tranquil and unique setting as they have been hand-built from local rock and thatch to ensure that they become one with their surrounding bushveld.


The main lodge is the perfect place to enjoy a sundowner from the well-stocked bar after an exhilarating hunting safari experience and ending it off on the balcony and admiring the breath-taking view across the valley with a blazing fire in the background.

We are also fully equipped with skinning and trophy handling facilities as well as refrigeration facilities.
