After many twists and turns through the scrub and sparsely treed bush spotting elephant, giraffe and hippo you will arrive at the cheetah sanctuary. Here you will gain key insight into the behaviour of cheetahs and the science behind caring for cheetahs in conservation programmes. Back at the Lodge a delicious three-course, buffet lunch is served. Summertime in the Karoo is characterised by clear, warm and sunny days so lunch will most likely be served beneath the Eucalyptus tree alongside the succulent garden. We offer good, wholesome South African cooking with a twist of French sophistication. All meals are prepared with only the freshest, seasonal produce, sourced directly from local farms. The perfect end to a perfect Day Trip Safari.

From thereon you will encounter an endless number of buck species ranging from the stunningly marked Oryx, wildebeest, eland, steenbok and the nation's pride, the springbok. You will be greeted by herds of zebra or you might come across the endangered rhino with its horn intact.
