Experience a walking Safari like never before. Opportunity to walk with the cheetah when you find them while they are relaxing somewhere in the game reserve. Great staff and rangers. You will have an opportunity to see the Big 5.

Yes, this is the same camp although sadly Gerry the giraffe is not with us any more. The original owners have also since passed away leaving the Main Lodge and Marula Camp in the very capable hands of Chris and his family.
