Services, Features and Activities
Activities at the Lodge
GAME DRIVES: The game drives, which take place both mornings and evenings, are an excellent opportunity to get to know the fauna and flora of Grietjie. Our English-speaking, highly qualified field guide will give you an unforgettable experience in his open vehicle. He will be happy to share his inexhaustible knowledge with you. If the language would be a problem, we will help you.
BUSH WALKS: Beside the daily game drives we also offer the opportunity to explore the bush in a more sporty manner under the guidance of our game ranger. A 2- to 3-hour walk will enable you to experience live the pure nature of the bush.
SLEEPING UNDER THE STARS: This really is an experience for daredevils. Our ranger takes you with him to the middle of the bush. Here, you’ll pass the night on a field mat with sleeping bag. A night watch is organised so that every participant watches over the others for 1 to 2 hours.
MASSAGES: If you want to take it easy, you can enjoy a wonderfully relaxing massage, during which you can dream away while your body relaxes. These massages (90´) can be given on your own private deck.
