Buffelsbed Hide

Buffelsbed Hide Built by a team of five Architectural and Engineering students, this  multi-level hide overlooks a water hole which is well-frequented by elephant, buffaloes, and lion. It is also adjacent to the border of the Kruger National Park and situated at the intersection of two rivers.  Facilities include running water and a toilet.

No charge or booking required

Elephant Pan Hide

One of the most picturesque spots in Ingwelala, Elephant Pan Hide is situated next to the Shlaralumi River on Argyle. It overlooks a waterhole in a shady grove. This is leopard country, and the perfect place to sit with a book, waiting for the animals to come to you. It has running water and a toilet.

No charge or booking required 

Bird Hide

Situated at the North-West corner of Argyle, Bird Hide has a water hole, and is frequented by giraffe, a variety of buck and, as its name suggests, spectacular bird life. There is no toilet or running water.

No charge or booking required

Viewing and picnic sites

There are a number of sites with tables and benches on the reserve.

They have been carefully chosen for their privacy, view and ambience, be it at a waterhole or on the banks of a river.

No charge or booking required
