Luxury in the wilds of South Africa's Eastern Cape

And, with a full spread of activities, from guided walks to classic safari drives, your expert guides and rangers will introduce you to an abundance of free-roaming wildlife, including the iconic Big Five.

Furthermore, the reserve is one of the largest private conservation initiatives in Southern Africa, with everything from rehabilitation programmes to anti-poaching units working towards the reserve's ethos of cultural, environmental and financial sustainability.
