You'll see countless herds of elephants, alongside water buffalo, hippos, roan, sable, wildebeest, zebra, giraffe, and letchwe, as well as lion, wild dogs and leopard. If you're a bird lover, we are home to many rare and endemic species.

We are the only lodge in the entire region that is authorized to offer night drives. This is an incredible opportunity to head out and spot the elusive nocturnal creatures, as well as some of the big cats in action if we are truly lucky. There are a lot of elusive nocturnal animals that make an African night safari so special. We'll go out in search of leopards, bushbabies, civets, genets, hyena, aardvark and more, plus we'll see lots of hippos as they come out to eat during the night.

The mokoro is a canoe made locally in the Zambezi delta region by digging out the trunk of a large, straight tree. It is propelled through the shallow waters of the delta by standing in the stern and pushing with a pole. It is an exciting way to experience nature within the delta as you can get up close to the beautiful birds and reptiles hiding in the reeds because the mokoros move silently. It is also a great way to get a taste for a traditional mode of transportation.
