The elusive predators, including lions, cheetahs, and leopards, often grace the landscape with their awe-inspiring presence. As the sun sets, embark on thrilling night drives (water levels permitting) to witness the enchanting world of nocturnal creatures, from the prickly porcupine and elusive aardwolf to the elegant serval, large spotted genet, and delightful lesser bushbaby. The air is filled with the melodious calls of resident bird species, such as the magnificent wattle crane, slaty egret, rosy-throated longclaw, and African skimmer, offering a symphony of natural wonders at Kwetsani Camp.
