Although these tolerate the presence of humans, they remain wild and free. The lodge accommodates a maximum of 20 guests. The suites are all individually decorated in a modern African theme. All have high ceilings and are particularly suitable for anyone suffering from respiratory problems.

There is an early morning game drive and a late evening game drive over an area of approximately 10,000 hectares. Youcan expect to see some, if not all, the Big 5, as well as many other species of game and some of the over 300 species of birds. Animals are usually seen from very close quarters, the sighting is professionally handled and controlled. Drives are normally 3 to 4 hours long, with a stop along the way for tea, coffee or sundowners. Idube is particularly well known for the frequent and excellent sightings of leopards - a photographer’s dream come true. After breakfast, a morning guided walk is offered or you can relax round the pool or on your decks.

Idube has linked to local communities who have put together an enjoyable village tour. Included in the tour is the local school and pre-school, choir and dancers, watching local food being prepared and trying it afterwards and ending up with the little cultural museum.
