One of the greatest advantages of our Exclusive Lodge Use offering is the unique chance to have a 10,000-hectare private concession within the heart of the renowned Kruger National Park all to yourself.

For almost 100 years, local and international visitors have had access to the park and enjoyed one of the world’s premier game-viewing destinations. After all, the Kruger National Park is home to an estimated 1500 lions, 12000 elephants, 2500 buffalos, 1000 leopards and remains the last refuge for our country’s white and black rhinos. “Big Five” aside, there is a myriad of other wildlife species to be admired with some 145 mammal and 500 bird species occurring in the park, including hippo, giraffe, zebra, cheetah, and wild dog, among others.

Yet, there is far more to the Kruger than meets the eye. The splendor and breadth of the Park can only be truly appreciated away from the busy tourist roads that only capture a snapshot of what exists beyond where the eyes can see.  On our private concession, located in the abundantly rich western central part of the Park, you have 10,000 hectares of pristine wilderness to explore at your leisure.

Accompanied by your private guides, with a maximum of six guests per vehicle, you will have a once in a lifetime opportunity to call a gem of South Africa’s heritage your own playground.

Experience the inimitable thrills of off-roading inside the National Park in pursuit of the legendary “Big Seven” species that call our concession home. You will be able to schedule when you go out on safari, what you would like to see, and how long you spend at every sighting. If you would like the unrivalled experience of discovering the magnificent Kruger National Park on foot, or would like to spend time focusing on the smaller things out in the bush, our guiding team will be on hand to ensure that we provide you with an unforgettable wildlife experience.
