Not only do guests see all the big and small animals in their natural
environment but they can interact with our orphaned animals and go for walks
with some of them.
Over the years we have cared for, raised and reintroduced into the bush a
variety of animals.
The Bush Camp is also ideal for school and youth groups to experience nature
The purpose of the camps is to teach the youth about conservation awareness,
game farm management, identification of birds, trees, grasses and spoors, snakes
and snake bite treatment as well as edible plants and berries.
We make the experience exciting including game drives, walks and lectures as
well as sports activities such as volley ball, swimming and bush rounders. For
more information about our School Educational Camp, please visit our web-site.
Accommodation is in 6 thatched cottages (some for 2 guests, others for families)
with private bathrooms.

The camp contains a central indoor and outdoor eating area under thatched roofs
as well as a cosy boma for your evening braai.
