COVID-19 We are Open!

While our Lodge was closed due to the South African Government’s lockdown regulations last year, we were carefully planning protocols and procedures to protect our guests and staff. We also used the time to engage with and train staff, and to renovate and upgrade our Lodge. Our entire team adheres to the strictest hospitality protocols issued by The Tourism Business Council of South Africa as well as World Health Organisation recommendations. We have taken extensive additional measures to ensure complete peace of mind for our guests by enforcing strict Covid-19 policies which includes (amongst others) daily sanitizing of all main areas, rooms, back of house areas and vehicles with a specialized machine; alcohol sanitizers of 70% and higher available throughout the property; adequate social distancing (including not filling our safari vehicles), as well as wearing of masks and protective equipment.

A heartfelt thank you to our loyal guests, staff, suppliers and family for your continual support. Even though it was a challenging year, we are excited to be operational again and can’t wait to host you! Our dedicated team is on hand should you have any questions or to address any concerns. We look forward to meeting you and once again create magical bush memories.
