You may choose to lie in and listen to the wonderful sounds of the wild or join one of the many activities on offer. After a light early morning refreshment, you will be taken across the river by boat to the mainland where your safari vehicle will be waiting to take you on an early morning game drive. The game drives last approximately 3 hours and includes a refreshment stop.
Guides Game walks are also offered on the mainland, which is considered to be a prime area to walk. These walks are conducted by highly specialised guides, whose main aim is to ensure your safety and share their intimate knowledge of the wild animals and their environment. These walks last approximately 3 hours and also include a refreshment stop. (This activity is available to children of 16 years and older only).
Guided Canoeing in inflatable canoes is available year-round. This activity departs mid-morning and lasts until mid-afternoon. This fun activity is a great way to spend an adventurous afternoon, enjoying a picnic lunch and drinks along the way. This water safari is a wonderful way to see hippos, crocodiles, birds and elephant. (This activity is available to children of 16 years and older only).
Guided island walks of an hour or longer, if desired, are offered daily to the centre of this magnificent island - home to century-old Baobab trees. Rare ground lilies flower early in the year and a tranquil river runs through the island, where a pair of Pel’s fishing owls have their home. The birdlife along the water’s edge includes African fin foot and Schalow’s turaco.
Once you return to camp from your chosen activity, you will have time to enjoy a swim in one of our two swimming pools, relax on the decks enjoying your favourite drink or take a well deserved siesta in your tent. High tea is served in the late afternoon, before the boat cruise leaves on a water safari - a chance to marvel at another magnificent African sunset.
Upon return from your boat cruise, you will have time to freshen up or have a drink at the bar before dinner. What better way to end a glorious day than on the deck overlooking the river, enjoying a delicious meal listening to the grunting of hippos and the gentle rumbling of elephants.
The pathways and dining decks are lit by lanterns that create a romantic atmosphere, allowing you to relax and soak up the sounds of nature. (Guides always accompany guests back to their tents after dark).
End your adventure filled day on the deck, listening to the grunting of hippos and the gentle rumbling of elephants.
