Activities at Kusudalweni & Hoedspruit

MANYELETI GAME RESERVE - MORNING DRIVE

Morning Safaris begin with a knock at your door, as your guide does wake you up. Get up, dress warmly and make your way to the Main Lodge for a warming cup of coffee or tea to start off the day. Now the adventure begins! Find a seat on the Land Cruiser, settle in and prepare to experience the early morning stirrings of the African bushveld. Each day is different and, depending on the weather, time of year, herd behavior and various other factors you may encounter. It is home to the BIG 5, Africa Elephant, Rhino, Cape Buffalo, Lion and Leopard. The LITTLE 5, Elephant shrew, Rhino beetle, Buffalo Weaver, ant Lion and the Leopard tortoise. Along the way, you will stop over to enjoy another cup of coffee or tea and a snack. This is a great time to take a few pictures and ask any questions you may have to your guide. Our nature guides have been hand-picked for their vast knowledge of the area and its animals and will be more than happy to clarify, inform and discuss any topic at length.

Now it's time to head back to the Main Lodge, and we continue our search for exciting wildlife sightings as we go. Once back at the lodge, guests can enjoy a hearty breakfast that includes everything from fresh, season fruits and creamy yogurts, continental or full English.

MANYELETI GAME RESERVE - AFTERNOON DRIVE

Afternoon Safaris begin in the late afternoon and provide guests with the opportunity to enjoy a different side of the bushveld, as day-roaming animals prepare to settle in for the night and our nocturnal friends emerge to stalk the plains. We drive into the veld as the sun begins to set, painting the sky with streaks of amber, ochre and gold, making our way into the approaching gloom of an African dusk. We stop over to enjoy a drink as the sunset makes way for nightfall and the sky is transformed into a velvety backdrop for thousands upon thousands of stars. On the way back the guide turns on a powerful spotlight and point out night-time predators and their prey. Back at the lodge there is an opportunity to return to your room to freshen up before dinner, which is served at the thatched dining area or beneath the stars at our open-air boma.

JESSICA HIPPO & BLYDE DAM BOAT TOUR & HOEDSPRUIT ENDANGERED SPECIES CENTRE (FULL OR HALF DAY TRIP)

Jessica the 17 year old female hippo has become somewhat of a worldwide phenomenon and has her own international fan club. She is a special and unique wild animal that interacts with humans in a rather different way than nature has intended. It is believed that hippo is one of the most dangerous and fearsome animals in Africa and there are many accounts of them attacking and killing people who invade their space or disturb their routine.

With Jessica this is not the case, since she has been reared from young by humans, she loves interaction and displays mind boggling characteristics which make us wonder about our approach towards wild animals. Learn her amazing story and have a chance to feed her, stroke her and if you’re brave enough even give her a kiss.

BLYDE RIVER BOAT TRIP (TIMES VARY THROUGHOUT THE YEAR)

Enjoy the splendor of the third largest Canyon in the world. Unquestionably being the largest ‘green canyon’ due to its lush subtropical foliage.

An interpretation tour by a tour guide will take you to the rare living Kadishi Tufa waterfall and the Three Rondawels. An abundance of wildlife will keep you distracted while learning more about the natural history of the Blyde Canyon. The Canyon is famous for the Kadishi Tufa waterfall. At 200m (around 660 feet) in height it is the second tallest tufa waterfall on earth.

In the case of the Kadishi Tufa fall, the formation that strikingly resembles a face which is crying profusely and is thus sometimes known as ‘the weeping face of nature. A leisurely cruise with the most stunning scenery, don’t forget your camera

HOEDSPRUIT ENDANGERED SPECIES CENTRE

PANORAMA ROUTE DAY TRIP (FULL DAY TRIP)

The Panorama Route with its breath-taking vistas around every mountain corner, waterfalls plunging down faces of sheer rock, memories of the gold rush following you as you meander down an endless river canyon, and eagles soaring above your head – you can't help walking with your head in the clouds. One breath-taking view after another, where you will experience mountains, sky, forests and the truly impressive Blyde River Canyon, one of the world's largest canyons and with its lush subtropical foliage makes it the greenest. Scenic landmarks with evocative names like God's Window, Wonder View, the Pinnacle, Bourke's Luck Potholes and the Three Rondawels beckon.

THE BOURKE'S LUCK POTHOLES

these giant potholes have formed at the confluence of the Blyde and Three rivers and mark the beginning of the Blyde River Canyon. They are without doubt incredible, essentially, they are the result of decades of swirling eddies of water where the two rivers meet, the tumult of which has caused extensive water erosion over time. The result is a series of cylindrical rock sculptures that look as though they would be more comfortable on the moon. An amazing array of white, yellow, and dark brown eddies of color caused by the soil present in the water.

THE THREE RONDAVELS

The Three Rondavels give a spectacular view over the Blyde River Canyon. Shaped like traditional African beehive huts, the Three Rondavels form three huge pinnacles of rock rising above the canyon below. Once known as the Three Sisters, the geological formations known today as The Three Rondavels, are one of the many natural highlights along Mpumalanga's Panorama Route. South Africans know the rondavel as a traditional beehive-shaped hut built and used over centuries by indigenous people as their homes. The Three Rondavels are spectacular peaks which look exactly like rondavels – round and fat, rising to a peaked top, but much, much higher than any traditional dwelling. In fact, when you stand on the viewpoint, 1 380m above sea level with the Blyde River Canyon below, you will still be looking up at those three distinctive peaks which tower 700m above the surrounding countryside. 

Be surefooted at the viewpoint, especially as there is no rail, and then just take in the dramatic view with the canyon and the Blyde River dam way below you. Although the visual element dominates on the Panorama Route, all your senses are enriched by the wealth of plant and animal life that the region support.

SUNSET DRIVE OR NIGHT DRIVE ON GUERNSEY PRIVATE NATURE CONSERVANCY

This activity leaves before the sun sets and gets back once the sky is dark.

Experienced guide drive through the Guernsey Private Nature Reserve, a stretch of protected land within the world-renowned Greater Kruger National Park eco system and is home to an astonishing array of fauna, flora, numerous bird species as well as buffalo, giraffe, zebra, various antelope and much more.
