Activities, Sports & Leisure

Guided Bush Walks

The walking safaris offer a great opportunity to learn about the smaller creatures in the bush and also to get familiar with the trees, plants and bushes.  These are guided by an armed game ranger.

Game Drives

The adventurous game drives lead participants through the untamed heart of the African bushveld. Close encounters with the continent's magnificent wildlife make for memorable safari tours.

Bush Breakfast and Bush Braai

Dining in the bushveld within the wilderness and wildlife make for an extraordinary dining experience.  Bush breakfasts in the mornings as well as Bush Braais / Barbeques in the evenings can be pre-booked.


The Sweni Wilderness Trail is an overnight activity and needs to be prebooked.  The Mananga 4 x 4 Adventure Trail is dependant on the weather.  Both of these trails are a great adventure and allow travellers to get to know the bushveld and its wildlife very well.
