Tassia Lodge Game Viewing and Activities
Guests can enjoy day and night game drives, but more popular is exploring the wildlife and area on foot with knowledgeable local guides. The Mokogodo Forest is home to diverse and thriving populations of wildlife, butterflies, birds, plants and trees. Camel walks are another popular activity, especially for guests wishing to spend a few nights camping in the bush. After the rainy season, the nearby river is an exciting place to visit, with many idyllic waterfalls and plunge pools along with abundant game. The amount of game is dependent on the water in the area. There are elephant, buffalo, giraffe, Greater and Lesser kudu, gerenuk, waterbuck, Grevy zebra. We also have sightings of leopard, wild dog, spotted and Striped hyena. After the rains in November and April, the numbers of games increases; particularly elephant.
