When visiting Ithala Game Reserve, it pays to spend some time strolling through Ntshondwe, the reserve’s award-winning main camp.
Ntshondwe’s excellent amenities all blend beautifully into the environment and despite offering all modern conveniences, one never feels cut-off from the natural beauty that surrounds you.
Take one of the shady pathways that lead through the camp’s lush indigenous vegetation.
Stop and have a closer look at the variety of moss, toad stools and mushrooms that thrive in the dampness of the forest floor.
All around you you’ll notice little animals quietly going about their daily lives in the undergrowth – insects, spiders, frogs, toads, lizards and birds
Even bigger animals – especially dassies, monkeys and bushbuck – are quite at home around Ntshondwe’s human visitors.
And then, to end your walk on a high, why not head onto one of the surrounding hills – easily accomplished along the well marked trails – for a breathtaking view over Ntshondwe and the reserve?
We hope you enjoyed this closer look at life inside Ntshondwe? Have a look here to read more about our December 2013 trip to Ithala Game Reserve
