After a nice refreshing shower in your private bathroom, you head out to your terrace feeling very good about life. Before heading down to the main house, you enjoy the fresh air and sounds of the African bush. On arrival you smell the aroma of fresh coffee brewing and step out onto the large deck area to enjoy a view of the Olifants river.
Animals frequently move past, either on route to drink, bath or to simply pass by along the river. You might find yourself admiring the beauty of a kingfisher, while your fellow guests enjoy the boisterous sounds of the local baboon troop moving through.
Du er i paradis og det er stor luksus, at der ikke er store grupper af andre mennesker. Netop det, at der maksimalt kan være 6 par ad gangen, gør, at du altid er i første række for oplevelserne. Ingen lange køer og ikke en masse andre, som maser sig foran. Det er dig og oplevelserne – det du altid har drømt om.
You soon get to know all the guests at the lodge, this is the beauty of accommodating only 12 guests at a time, you never feel crowded. But you still get to meet people while enjoying what the bush has to offer. Guests are accommodated in pairs, in three semi-detached duplex chalets located around the main house.
You are truly in paradise. It’s such a great luxury to not have to share the lodge area with big groups of people. The fact that the lodge take a maximum of 6 pairs, mean you are at the forefront of the variety of experiences. No long queues but a family feeling with all the friendly staff at the lodge. It’s what dreams are made of.
Yesterday you started your day with a bushwalk in the beautiful Parsons nature reserve, your experienced guide introduced you to the tracks and signs of the bush. You might have even had a few close encounters with the wildlife that frequents the area. The day then took another turn and you found yourself on an quad bike, with the wind blowing through your hair, while you scan the landscape for wildlife. Then to end the day off you spent the evening at the bush camp, arriving while the sun gave off its final rays and darkness began to illuminate the many lanterns that surround the bonfire. It’s certainly a romantic way to finish the day. While you wait for darkness to fall, diurnal animals find a place to rest, while the nocturnal creatures begin to wake up. The sky above you is a spectacle as it shimmers with millions of white stars bringing light to the darkness.
While relaxing around the open fire listening to the crackle of the flames, you recollect the many experiences from your day and all the animals you have seen.
