Four Leopards have also been identified in the area, but are understandably, not often seen.

Apart from the expected typical bushveld birdlife, you can see ostriches and if you are in luck, a Secretary Bird stalking its prey in the grass.
One game drive a day is included in the daily rate and can be taken in the early morning before breakfast or in the late afternoon - these trips take approximately an hour and a half. Game walks can be arranged.
