We now have a wheel chair friendly lodge which sleeps 4 disabled people. We have all the proper equipment, facilities and experienced guides to make sure your stay is comfortable and successful. The Lodge consists of a lapa/kitchen and four fully furnished chalets, gently sloping entry ramp, convenient low-placed light switches and a large, specially adapted bathroom with all the necessary amenities. The rooms are all level with adapted door widths and bed heights. We have over 30 000ha in which to hunt in this area. The veld is varied - rolling hills with deep kloofs, open acacia thornveld and dense bushveld and patches of open grassland.

Gentle sloping ramps making the lodge totally accessible for wheel chairs. The bathroom is adapted with rails and support bar, at all the right height. The hunters are loaded onto the back of the hunting vehicles with the aid of either a special lift or a ramp - depending on the chosen vehicle. Four helpers surround the lift platform at all times to stabilize the chair and assist in case something should go wrong. The lift is mostly used for people in heavy electrical wheelchairs or those who prefer not to use the ramp. We use different hunting techniques, this is usually dictated by the level of disability as well as the hunters preference.

The hunter is carried into an ambush position in the portable chair by the 4 carriers. Due to the nature of the terrain disabled hunters usually have to make use of the ambush method but, where possible, "walk-and-stalk" hunts are also conducted. In the hunting areas, many ridges overlook kloofs, gulleys and terraces and when hunters go after kudu, impala, blue wildebeest, mountain reed-buck or even bush-buck, they are carried in the chair along these ridges early in the morning and/or late in the afternoon. We stop frequently to glass for game. If the hunter cannot shoot from the spot, we work out an approach route and "stalk" (carry him) closer to the animal.
