BIRD WATCHING NATURE WALKS
Enjoy an easy walk around the resort grounds with an experienced bird watcher. About one and a half hours.

BOAT EXCURSIONS.
Take a morning boat ride around Ol Kokwe and Rock of Gibraltar with an experienced bird and animal guide who can call and feed the fish eagles.  Morning light is best for bird photography.

Longer boat excursions around the lake including “Giraffe Island” can also be arranged.  The Island is on the Ruko Conservancy.  Several years ago 8 giraffe were brought by ferry to the island which was then a peninsula with the plan that when the lake dried up more they would locate to the mainland.  With the unexpected rise in water levels they are now isolated on the island with other wildlife including ostriches, impala, rock hyraxes and large monitor lizards.

We can arrange a morning nature walk around Giraffe Island with a conservancy ranger followed by a Champagne Breakfast.

EXCURSION TO LAKE BOGORIA TO WATCH FLAMINGOS
We currently do not arrange this, but if you have transport we can pack a picnic breakfast or lunch for your own excursion (usually around 4 hours).

SUNDOWNERS
We can arrange sundowners on the lake by boat, on Rock of Gibraltar, or at the Look Out Point down from the swimming pool.  Or sit and watch the sunset at the pool or either bar areas while conversing with your friends and family and your favourite cocktail.
