How do I get to your Reserve?
We are remote which is part of the attraction to this magical reserve. There are 2 options, either charter a plane from Johannesburg and land on a neighbouring reserve. From the airstrip the drive with your guide is ±40 minutes, 30 minutes of this is in the reserve! Option 2 is to fly into Kimberley Airport on a commercial flight. From here it is a 5 hour drive with our preferred chauffeur company. This is the most affordable option.
What does your tariff include? Are there any hidden costs?
All that is excluded in the fee per person is alcoholic beverages, soft drinks, bottled water, optional fly camping experience $550 per group, gratuities and curio shop. Optional donation to the Rhino anti-poaching team of $250.
What to pack?
October to April the weather is warm to hot. Our coldest months are May to end August. We will advise each group of packing requirements in advance.
Is there anything I need to know about travelling to South Africa?
There is no malaria in this area making it a perfect family destination. Check with your doctor regarding vaccinations. There are some countries which require a visa to enter South Africa, check these details with your travel agent or airline well in advance.

Conserving and protecting wildlife in Africa, particularly White and Black Rhino requires 24/7, 365 days of the year anti-poaching efforts. Our APU (Anti-poaching Unit) is one of the most experienced teams that exists. All the dedicated men on the ground have epic military histories and so far their passion, commitment and expertise has paid off and to date we have not lost a rhino. This is an accomplishment that cannot be boasted anywhere else in Africa. This all comes at a huge expense so please consider a small donation towards this crucial effort of protecting our rhino and other wildlife.
