Baobab Hill Bush House courtyard

Your own bush retreat

A single building provides entertaining and dining space and a fully equipped kitchen. An outdoor lapa (part covered dining area) nestles under the glower of a baobab tree. The swimming pool offers relief in the hottest months when temperatures exceed 40C (105F).

Walking with baobabs, Baobab Hill Bush House

Beautiful flora

Remarkable sub-tropical flora includes groves of giant baobabs. Lala palm fringed floodplains teem with charismatic megafauna (herds of Cape buffalo and elephant) during seasonal migration. Walking may be available, subject to the availability of Trail Guides at the time of your visit.

Lion pride, Makuleke

Year round game

Game viewing is good all year round, but the area is particularly noted for its exceptional birding, which you can indulge in from the outdoor deck. Prides of lion roam the floodplains when herds of prey congregate in the dry season. Leopards are plentiful, if shy.

Elusive antelope

There are good sightings of kudu and nyala: you may spot eland, tsessebe or Lichtenstein’s hartebeest here. Look out for Pel’s fishing owl and numerous local specials.
