Africa through the eyes of our guests
  • The African wild dog dons a mottled coat with a mix of brown, black and white colours. Each wild dog has a different coat pattern which makes it possible for each one to be distinctly identified. The coat patterns can be asymmetrical with the left side of the body often having different markings from that of the right. The patterns on the coat exist predominantly on the trunk and legs.

  • With a vast striking beauty stretching throughout the mountainous region, it's hard not to be transfixed by the sheer geographical majesty that is the Cederberg region. Known for its rooibos tea, fynbos, fruit farming, and notable San rock art, this rugged gem found in the Western Cape province of South Africa, holds a host of treasures waiting to be experienced. From the unique birdlife gliding across a blue skyline to dips in crisp mountain rock pools, a stay in the diverse landscape of the Cederberg is a glimpse of paradise.

  • 🔊On to hear the Western Pride males roar
_
Interestingly, there are only four species of the Panthera genus that can roar: lion, tiger, leopard and jaguar. The bones and voice box of these cats can extend and stretch more than other species, which helps create the deep, loud ROAR sound. Lions roar when they are looking for a mate (to announce the fact that they are ready to mate), when they are hungry, to warn off other animals, to communicate with other lions in the pride (or to locate members when the pride is away on a hunt) or simply as a show of strength.

  • Made in South Africa and of single-origin, @cederbosrooibostea grows at the foot of the majestic Cederberg Mountains in the Western Cape. The GMO, pesticide, and herbicides free rooibos is best enjoyed from our terrace.

  • Leopards have short, strong legs that enable them to jump to a height greater than 2.5 metres above the ground. The ability of leopards to climb trees at a young age enables them to be safe from lion and hyena attacks. Their large, sharp, retractable claws may be used to trip fleeing prey, used in fights and to climb trees. Leopards are equipped with large jaws and canines that are used to kill their prey and carry or drag it from one place to another. The large head and neck of leopards are vital for hoisting prey weighing up to 125 kg up a tree.
