The Lolldaiga Hills is home to a vast array of flora and fauna. We have four of the ‘Big Five’ (no Rhino) as well as Cheetah, Giraffe, Hartebeest, Oryx and Eland among others. Our roads pass through and beside diverse habitats – hilltops, valleys, dams, open plains and bush; making for a scenic and varied game drive. We recommend that you take the guide with you, particularly if you are unfamiliar with the roads.


Walking

We can organise walks with our guide and an armed ranger. Walking gives you the chance to see some of the smaller flora and fauna that you may miss on game drives, as well as some incredible views. Please inform the guide of how far you would like to walk and the level of difficulty. We have some very steep hills and are at a high altitude. When walking please wear neutral/bush coloured clothes, carry plenty of water and follow any safety instructions that the guide/ranger may give you.

With notice, we are able to organise horse-riding on the Ranch for experienced riders. This will be an additional cost and will be charged separately.

 

 


Cave visit

We have a couple of caves up in the hillsides that you can visit but please be aware that they can only be accessed on foot and some may find the walk challenging.


Bird-watching

The prime bird-watching sites here are at dams. We recommend parking your car, getting comfortable, and sitting for a couple of hours with good pair of binoculars and camera. We have Giant Kingfishers, Black Storks, and numerous birds of prey. We are in the process of compiling a species list so for those of you that are experienced birders, please record and pass on any interesting finds.


Picnics

One of our best picnic spots is the large dam you pass on the left hand side on the way in to the Farmhouse. Under the shade of fig tree you can relax whilst, if you’re lucky, Elephants, Zebra and Waterbuck, among others, come down to drink.
