The reserve borders on the renowned Zambezi National Park, with continuous wildlife areas stretching far into Botswana, affording opportunities to view some of the biggest free-ranging elephant and buffalo herds in the world.

The swimming pool provides welcome respite during the heat of the day, and guests can laze around the pool or enjoy cocktails within full view of the surrounding wildlife.
