In the heart of the malaria-free Waterberg Biosphere lies this rare GEM!
Baboons and all - kranses, plains, hills and indigenous trees stretching to the horizon.
Relax on the deck of your lodge, watching game on the plain below, swim in the river pools, identify animal tracks or, if you are actively inclined, go on a game drive or mountain bike ride to spot the animals. Better still, walk through the indigenous bush and savour the experience of studying thr trees as they change through the seasons.
Settle into this exclusive rustic-luxury bush camp and just 'switch off'. It's impossible not to do so.
The River Lodge:
Comprises a central living area and two free standing bedrooms. The living area consists of kitchen and guest toilet in stone under thatch, attached to the large octagonal, luxury, draped tented area and viewing deck overlooking the plain below and the hills beyond the river.
View from the Deck:
In the middle-distance is the krans where the baboons sleep and relics of bushman paintings can be seen. The river bends in front of it - life as it has been from time immemorial.
Stone under thatch bathroom with shower and toilet, adjoining this luxury octagonal, draped bedroom tent with its own private viewing deck.
The guest bedroom:
Listen to the call of the nightjar as you head down to your luxury tent for the night.
Dinning on the deck:
After a morning walk or game drive, come home to a leisurely breakfast or brunch on the deck and watch the animals grazing on the plain below and eagles gliding in the thermals.
Take a stroll along the river to the 'Lily Pond'.
The swimming pool:
Cool off with a mid-day swim in this beautiful, deep pool - no crocks or hippos.
Watch the 'dassies' sunning themselves on the rocks and listen to the baboons as they jostle for choice sleeping spots on the krans, while sipping sundowners - you, not the baboons.
THE RIVER CAMP:
Large en-suite, (bath, toilet and shower), bedroom tent on deck with viewing deck over the river.
Large living area under thatch with viewing deck over river.
There is a further large tent on a wooden deck which has a separate bathroom under thatch with bath, shower and toilet.
