Junior Rangers Programme


With various activities to take part in including game drives, bush walks, picnicking and more, Kwa Maritane and Bakubung have developed something even more engaging, the Junior Rangers Programme.

Game drives


In the evenings, guests are taken on a game drive, which brings you a lot closer to the big game. The animals are habituated to the vehicle, which means that they are used to the vehicle approaching them and know that it never causes them harm. This enables you to get within five to 10 metres of the larger predators, even while they're feasting on a recent kill.
