Things to do

Exploring of the bush, game drives in an open Landrover and walks can be arranged at any time, as well as game/bird watching from a hide, or spoor identification. The personal attention of your game ranger provides an authentic wildlife experience and great insight into the unspoiled splendour of Sigurwana Wilderness. Our ranger also cares for our guests’ particular interests, such as photography.

Game Drives

Sigurwana’s diverse wildlife resources include kudu, sable, nyala, waterbuck, common reedbuck, mountain reedbuck, klipspringer, bushbuck, impala, wildebeest, zebra, eland, caracal, bushbabies around the lodge and the elusive leopard, while night drives may surprise our guests with sightings of shy nocturnal game such as ant bear, porcupine, honey badger, pangolin and brown hyena.

Walking

For  the adventurous guests: we offer a guided walk to a Bush camp ( a few hours). After your arrival you build up your own “tented accommodation”, cook over open fire ….and spend 1 night in this idyllic camp. The next morning you walk on a different trail back to the Lodge.

Swimming

Refresh yourself in a natural rock pool and spend as much time as you want. Well hidden in the Reserve runs spring water constantly into a deep rock pool. This is where swimming is a most natural affair.

Want to be alone at this special place? This is the place to enjoy a swim in spring water, relax in the sun and have a little picnic under a Waterberry Tree.

Historical Site

South African History adds spice to Sigurwana. There is a place in the Reserve where little ruins are to be seen but they are connected with an amazing story being told by the owner. The story was made into a film.

 

Bushmen paintings (San)

Honouring the Past – Admiring an ancient culture. Visiting Bushman Paintings of a thousand years leave a humble feeling. Sigurwana is very privileged to have 2 places where we can still see some of the paintings.

 

Cooking

There is nothing like a fire, a big pot, drinks and good laughter

The owner, Neil Wright, has great joy to invite male guests to the cooking of a very South African Meal which he does to perfection.

Having cooked a typical South African “Potjie” – a big iron pot – at a crackling open fire in the Boma with Neil, is an unforgettable experience for all men who love cooking.

It is not only great fun but also the creation of a delicious meal.
