Accommodating 24 guests in luxury individual suites and each with their own private jacuzzi, it features large expanses of glass and magnificent wooden decks for better game-viewing. This main lodge has been carefully designed and built, in keeping with eco-sensitive policies, to ensure that there is little impact on the natural environment, as guests will bear witness to artifacts discovered during the building programme. There is also a very obvious presence of heritage! The construction of the main lodge had to be delayed because of the discovery of an archaeological site, which has now become part of the lodge itself.
