Greet your first early morning in the bush! Join your ranger for tea and rusks, then off on your game drive as the sun comes up! Return to the lodge to share your sighting tales with fellow guests over a sumptuous breakfast.
From then the kids can play in the pool, or go on a bush walk with the ranger whilst the parents relax and get ready for lunch and the afternoon game drive

Today after the morning drive and breakfast you might like to spend the day at the beach at nearby Kenton on Sea - the lodge will prepare a picnic lunch and you will be taken either by road or by boat to the beach and bring you back in time for the evening game drive.

Today after breakfast you can relax in the grounds of the hotel, swim in the pool, or go down to the beach.In the afternoon why not take an Ocean safari from Central Beach (spot the whales in season) and in the evening drive down to nearby Keurbooms Beach and dine al fresco at Enrico overlooking the ocean and the rocks. Fabulous at sundown!

Another day beckons! Take the kids to nearby Monkeyland and Birds of Eden or maybe have a wonderful experience at the Elephant Sanctuary at The Crags. Here you can walk with the elephants, brush them down and put them to bed after an elephant back ride!

Another day to spend at the beach or maybe drive up to Oudtshoorn to see the Cango Caves or visit an Ostrich farm.
