A library with a mixture of vintage artifacts and books, as well as small relics found on site while building the lodge on this historical military area, all encourage a touch and exploration.

Often, a game drive away from the lodge becomes so unnecessary as the elephants and wildlife meander through the camp. Sundowners are then enjoyed from the safety of the decks or lengthy walkways, only meters above these animals as they traverse below you and go about their feeding.
