Elephant, Buffalo, Lion, Leopard, Zebra, Lechwe, Giraffe, Roan, Sable and even Africa Wild Dog make this their home and for birders there are over 300 species and there is a nearby colony of African Skimmers. In addition to the usual game drives in early mornings and late afternoons/evenings, bush walks are also on offer and there is even boating and fishing offered on the Zibadianja Lagoon when water levels permit on HES Zib, as the boat is known.

The Accommodation

Each tent has a full lounge area with leather sofa and armchair and desk looking out across to the lagoon and there is even a copper gas fire for those cold winter nights. The bathrooms are open plan with solid copper ball and claw baths, double copper basins and both indoor and outdoor showers. Each tent also has its own private plunge pool for those warm afternoons. Each tent has a professional camera and lenses for guests to use during their stay. The main area is very much in the same style and there is a private library there as well. The fire pit is raised on the main decking and dining taking place under the stars.

The old wine cellar has now been converted into a sunken, hidden hide.

Far far away, behind the word mountains, far from the countries Vokalia and Consonantia, there live the blind texts. Separated they live in Bookmarksgrove right at the coast of the Semantics, a large language ocean. A small river named Duden flows by their place and supplies it with the necessary regelialia.

It is a paradisematic country, in which roasted parts of sentences fly into your mouth. Even the all-powerful Pointing has no control about the blind texts it is an almost unorthographic life One day however.
