Countrywide Game Lodge Specials

If you are dreaming of wide-open spaces and the sight and sounds of the bush, take advantage of our Post Lockdown Game Lodge Specials. Imagine waking to birdsong and drinking coffee on your veranda with antelope grazing silently before you. A roaring campfire under a star-filled sky with the sounds of the wild in the distance. Sitting quietly at a waterhole watching elephants at play. This atmosphere is what we need to lift ourselves from our day to day lives of these last few months of lockdown.
