Day Visitor Activities at Makhulu Game Lodge and Safaris


Day visitors are welcome at Makhulu Game Lodge and Safari´s. .


 Game Drives

While lion watching would be the most obvious and fascinating activity, the mere fact that the lions feed on meat, with plenty of left-over´s, many raptors are attracted to the farm. These would include vultures and crows that feed on the carcasses left by the lions. The farm is also a photographer´s dream. Not only can you photograph the lions, but spectacular sunsets would offer you unique opportunities. Going on a game drive is a must. Most of the antelope species can be seen on the farm, some of which are Buffalo, Lion, Sable Antelope, Eland, Kudu, Nyala, Oryx, Zebra and even Crocodile. Also to be seen is many of the smaller species like Suricates, Ground Squirrel, Warthogs, Jackal, Steenbok and even Tortoises. A special treat would be to watch the lions being fed. This gives you the opportunity to take unique photographs as you would be able to capture on film the feeding frenzy of a pack of lion from close range.
