To imagine Africa is an exciting thought. But to see, hear, sense and experience Africa in reality, is something which defies the imagination. Situated in the heart of the African bush, and part of the extended Kruger National Park, a beautiful Safari Camp lies nestled amongst its awe inspiring “citizens” – referred to as the BIG FIVE. The big four will introduce you to them……. James, Mandy, Richard and Sonja – each one of whom is a qualified ambassador of the African experience.
James will enthral you with his professional knowledge of the eco-environment’s inhabitants – including the role played by the Fauna and Flora in African context. Should you be of French origin, he will be too happy to accommodate you. Having qualified in Game Management and tracking in Botswana confirms his skills at being a field guide. He is frequently invited to conduct safari excursions in other well known lodges for French Nationals. His familiarity with the Kruger National Park has established him as an excellent tour guide. Birdwatchers will enjoy James’s patience and knowledge in this respect.
Mandy (Amanda), our all-purpose excursion, reservations, administrations and marketing specialist, will attend to your every request to “see & do more”! With 15 years experience in tour operations arranging transfers, 4×4 safaris, packaged tours, accommodation and fly-in packages she would be happy to assist you as she has many agents and direct clients with their specific and individual requests. Owning her own graphic and web design business also enables her to keep on top of marketing demands.. no mountain too high… no river too wide!
Richard is our 4×4 overlanding SAFARI LEADER. As a bush guide and tracker, he is a fearless professional when in his 4X4 he takes his guests through the most challenging area’s of Africa’s frontiers. His professional qualifications will at all times ensure your safety. He will help you to challenge nature in the open game drive vehicle – and might give you a hair-raising experience during night-time adventures by spotlight. For an inspiring extended Safari to Namibia, Botswana, Zambia and Mozambique where you can sleep under one of Africa’s giant Baobab trees arrange your plans with Richard (or Mandy) personally. Imagining Africa becomes a reality with these Safaris – which he has conducted for well over 10 years. You will soon realise that Richard has been a companion to the African scenes almost all his life.
Sonja, your caring hostess, and chef of excellence, will take good care of your needs for sustenance.. food, liquid refreshments and specialities to tempt your taste buds. She will introduce you to our members of staff, and show you to your comfortable en-suite tent, where you can spend your stay in comfort – and through the canvas of your abode, hear the sounds of Africa after the sun has set. Sonja has been in charge of several lodges – of which one was her own. She has a unique understanding of the needs of tourists. Sonja has some 20 years experience in living in Africa and employs a hand trained staff, including an African Chef whose skills will satisfy presentation and taste. Dinners in the “boma” under the stars, are unforgettable.
