FAQ

How long should we stay?

Three days is the ideal visit to a private game lodge, this gives one the time to ensure that you see the maximum amount of game in an unrushed manner.


What time of the year should we travel?

Each season has its own beauty and in an ideal world one should try and experience the bushveld in the winter and in the summer to enjoy the two contrasts. Our summers are hot but tolerable as the air is very dry.
Spectacular thunderstorms occur during the months of November through to March. Winter is dry and generally easier to view game as the bush is not as dense. The winter days are fantastic as temperatures average a moderate 20 degrees Celsius. When traveling in the winter months it is recommended that you dress warmly for the game drives.


What is the dress code?

Bushveld casual, neutral colours are recommended. Most guests wear long trousers for dinner and always ensure you have a light sweater or windbreaker handy. During summer a swimming costume is essential.


Malaria prophylactics?

The lodges are located out of the malaria area so you will not need to worry about this.


Should I bring Binoculars?

The game drives do get quite close to the game but if you are an avid bird watcher we recommend a small lightweight pair of binoculars to enjoy your bird viewing. Most rangers have a pair on the vehicle but it is recommended that you travel with your personal pair which suits your eyesight.


Photography Questions?

Safaris are a photographers paradise; video or still equipment should be in sturdy photographic cases.


If I have Dietary requirements?


Your specific dietary requirements should be communicated with the reservations consultant at the time of confirmation, this enables the lodge to ensure your preferred meals are available and supplies are ordered in time for your arrival.


Medical emergencies?

The group subscribes to a medical evacuation service but it is recommended that you include this on your travel insurance policy when travelling.


What should I pack for my Safari?


Dress completely informal. Neutral colours recommended. Warm jacket for winter and night safaris. Comfortable walking shoes. Swimming costume.
Binoculars, camera and video camera. Sunhats and sunglasses. Sunscreen.


What is the Weather like?

South Africa: Daytime summer temperatures (September – April) are high and may soar above 36°C/97°F. Winters (May – August) have chilly nights and crisp early mornings (minimum 3°C/38°F), but the days are fine and warm. Rainfall occurs predominantly in the summer months from September to April in the form of magnificent late afternoon/evening thundershowers.


What is the difference between the National Parks and the Private Reserves?

The national parks are administered by South African National Parks which ensures a standardised level of accommodation and facilities and the rates are usually kept low. These parks are mainly self-drive destinations with selfcatering accommodation although the larger parks like Kruger Park have restaurant facilities.
The game watching in the private parks is of an equal standard to that of the national parks, but the accommodation is usually far more luxurious and the service very attentive. Private game parks offer game drives with trained guides, bush walks, bush dinners and various activities as part of their service. The luxury comes at a price, but the private lodges are a good choice if you would like to be spoiled.


What is an open safari vehicle?

A modified four wheel drive vehicle designed to carry between 6 and 10 guests is used to bring you to within close proximity of the game. The vehicle has a convas roof with no sides and allows for maximum all-round visibility.
it should not alarm you getting close to big game as long as you observe the rules laid down by your ranger.


Is the water safe to drink?

The water in all the lodges is perfectly safe to drink. It has been purified but there is always bottled water available.


Is the fruit safe to eat?

The fruit supplied by the lodges is perfectly safe to eat, however DO NOT pick fruit from trees or the ground without consulting your ranger as these fruits can be poisonous.
