The abundant natural water system, with perennial rivers and the beautiful waterfall and cascades on the Sundays River, makes for a unique sanctuary, attracting several rare bird species and an enviable array of raptors and vultures.

Perfect location for a travel between Joburg and Durban, tents are nice and the food was great.Unfortunately the staff, specifically the rangers haven't got no passion for there job ....... they haven't understood that to be at the Springbok lodge is holiday and we have paid enough money to be entertained. Unfortunately the staff was not willing to give us (family with 2 kids) the time of our life .......
