There is a variety of game and bird life that can be encountered in this safe haven of solitude and tranquillity. Guided walks can be arranged. There are several wonderful picnic sites along the shoreline. Picnic lunches and a blanket can be ordered at the lodge along with a ice cooler for drinks.

Daily game drives to the famous Hluhluwe iMfolozi Park can be booked at the lodge. The lodge recommends guests to drive themselves to the Memorial Gate entrance to the park where their Safari operator will meet them with an open safari vehicle. Self drive trips are also highly recommended particularly in the winter months from April to October when the grass is short and foliage is sparse. Hluhluwe iMfolozi Park is a major draw-card to the region offering visitors a chance to see the "Big 5" in this vast 97 000 hectare reserve.
