Welcome to one of the world’s most picturesque tourist destinations and most beautiful cities in the world – Cape Town. Situated in the shadow of Table Mountain and surrounded by pristine white beaches, it is often called the ‘cosmopolitan hub of Africa’. It is home to a rich cultural and historical heritage, vibrant restaurants and nightlife and a multitude of activities – from extreme sports to leisurely scenic cruises and world-class shopping. Choose from a variety of optional activities, at additional cost, during your stay in the Cape.
Moditlo River Lodge in the Blue Canyon Conservancy of Greater Kruger Park was designed to combine the rustic nature of a bushveld retreat with the style and elegance you’d expect of a first rate safari destination. Visitors can look forward to every comfort and convenience, including game drives conducted by passionate, knowledgeable nature guides; a full-service restaurant that serves the very best in South African wines and cuisine; as well as alfresco boma barbeques prepared by our talented chefs.
Explore the bushveld of the Blue Canyon Conservancy in open 4 x 4 Land Cruisers during morning and evening game drives. Each day in the bush is different depending on the weather, time of year, herd behavior and various other factors. Your guide and tracker know the reserve like the back of their hands and know where the animals congregate.
