For the quiet, respectful nature lover, we offer a Unique Guest Experience where you can overnight in Andi Rive's private camp.

Andi and her team live in tents alongside 3 lions in a shady grove situated on the side of a rocky mountain.

Join them for sundowners on a boulder overlooking the Eastern Free State's beautiful valleys and mountains followed by a braai around their campfire.

Waking up to the sound of lions roaring and birds chirping may be an everyday event for Andi Rive and team, but it is something truly special for the rest of us. The freshness of the air and the uniqueness of the setting never fail to inspire one. Sleeping in comfortable tents alongside lion enclosures is a treat. Chatting to Andi at the fire is a privilege.

Night sounds include jackal, Mountain Reedbuck, baboon, lions, owls and nightjars. There are literally thousands of birds including a breeding pair of Black Eagles and a colony of Cape Vultures.

Lions are cats and will come out of their hiding spot if they feel like it. We do not force them to be seen if they choose not to. But usually some of our lions will show themselves and a few might come to the fence for a closer look.

Property Facilities:
Beds have warm duvets and blankets and all tents are carpeted. Towels are provided.

It can get really cold so make sure you have warm jackets and boots.

Please advise us regarding braai preferences if you do not eat your common garden South African fare. We are happy to braai alternatives.

We provide a small assortment of alcoholic beverages but you may bring along a special bottle of wine or something of your choice for enjoying as a sundowner or around the fire.

Area Information:
This is not an environment suited to young children as the lions see them entirely as prey and the lion fences are only metres away from the tents. We do not want the lions pacing up and down along the fence lines and becoming discontent with their environment.

The weather can play a large role in this experience and so guests need to be ready for anything. Meals may have to be eaten in the kitchen, dining room or sitting room tents.

This experience is not suitable for those who are looking for a luxury safari camp.

In Room Facilities:
This experience although thoroughly special, is very ordinary in the sense that it is truly the everyday living space and routine of Andi and team.

Depending on which tent you are in, the bathroom is located 5 - 30m away from the tents in a rock side setting.

The tented kitchen is self-catering so feel free to bring along extra snacks and breakfast.

The braai process takes several hours so meals are eaten quite late.

Lighting is solar powered and it is recommended that guests bring their own headlamp/torch for additional light.

* Lion Sanctuary
* Mountain on site
