  • Sometimes, the best moments happen when you least expect them. Picture this: one of our guests decided to stay back on our lodge deck, enjoying every sip of his gin and tonic, when suddenly, nature decided to put on a show just for him. As he relaxed in the tranquility of the African bush, a lioness emerged, stalking a few wildebeest in the distance. Talk about being at the right place at the right time!
