This area is renowned for its sightings of the Big Five with large herds of Buffalo and many prides of Lion. Endangered White Rhino are also often encountered on game drives. The Lodge is situated halfway between the Malelane Gate and Skukuza, and if you are driving yourself to the lodge, you need to ensure that you give yourself plenty of time, as private vehicles are not permitted on park roads after hours.
There are daily flights between Johannesburg O.R. Tambo International Airport and Kruger Mpumalanga International Airport. Please speak to one of our Destination Specialists.
