Three more reasons to travel

Now you have every excuse to travel. We have removed all the hurdles for you.

* Special rates apply for travel in September and October.

Ultimate privacy

(Stay for 2 to 14 days)

Enjoy a getaway at one of our lodges and surrender to ultimate privacy, with minimal interaction with other guests and staff. Revel in a sole-use lodge or hole up in a secluded suite and delight in peace and quiet. You also have the opportunity of your own private vehicle and the tailoring of your
unique safari.

Working from holiday

(Stay 7 or 14 days*)

Immerse yourself in the beauty of the natural surrounds and work from the comfort of the bush. Be sure to invest in mobile data as the WIFI can be temperamental (you are in the middle of nowhere after all). Tailor your programme to suit your hours and needs and enjoy a totally personalised schedule.

Nature is my classroom

(Stay 7 or 14 days*)

Nature is our greatest teacher and the wild is the ultimate learning space for children. While parents are typing away, kids can participate in our fun-filled WILDchild programme. Filled with interactive activities, the programme offers little ones the opportunity to discover new experiences and cultures. Ideal for families, this getaway is a great time to really get in touch with the wild. Not only are children educated in the wild, they can also join their virtual classroom ensuring that they don’t miss out on any school. We will happily tailor their safari times to fit in with their schedule.

Need to Travel Now incentive

Should the South African Resident Rate option seem more appealing at this stage and you choose to become a Bateleur Club Member within 2 weeks of your stay, &Beyond will credit you with the shortfall and you would benefit from the membership rate.
