As the early rays of the sun turn the bush from greenish blue to orange, the first expedition leaves camp and sets off into the vast wilderness. Whether on horseback, comfortably seated in a 4×4 or on foot, the wild bush will be at arm’s length throughout your safari — and chances are you will meet quite a few of the large mammals that has made the African wilderness both famous and feared.
The proximity to both water and vast bush areas ensures the visitors of all Dunhu Ramambo lodges a plethora of activities.
Horse stables at Dunhu Ramambo cater for both novices wanting an hour or two’s ride as well as experienced riders wanting a half or full day’s ride.
The advantages of riding horseback through the bush are many. You see, smell and feel the surrounding wilderness more intensely as well as get a chance to get (very) close to the animals of the bush.
All horse riders are accompanied by our most trusted guides, who are more than happy to share their in-depth knowledge of the wildlife, the people and the customs of this fascinating land.
Bush walks are another great way to lose yourself in the African wilderness, while at the same time working up a healthy appetite before a delicious breakfast or dinner under the open skies. While bush walks are not for the fearsome — chances are you will get very close to the wild game — our experienced guides will ensure your safety and comfort at all times.
Game drives in open game drive vehicles can be organised both morning and evening. For those staying with us for more than one day, drives can be taken within both reserves. Night drives are also available to view the nocturnal animals and birds of the southern African bush. Night drives normally start after dinner and you are generally out for an hour, returning for relaxation around the fire place.
Canoeing is a great way of watching the large mammals (and crocodiles) drink, eat and socialise by the waterfront. Some of the more dramatic interactions between animals take place on the river banks, making it a wildlife photographer’s paradise. Canoeing can be experienced on the Serui River from Pamuzinda lodge.
Experience a personal interaction with our three resident elephants, Boxer, Shorty and Mambo. You can feed them and have your photograph taken with them. The elephant handlers are happy to tell you all about their peculiar behaviour and habits, giving you first hand knowledge about these amazing giants. Perfect for family trips or small groups of school children who want to learn more.
Fishing for bass, barbell or bream is best done on the Serui at Pamuzinda. While we are able to provide basic rods and tackle, the more serious fisherman is encouraged to bring his own equipment. Should luck and skill coincide, our chefs can prepare your catch any way you prefer.
Clay pigeon shooting was — and still is — a cherished pastime at safari camps. It demands accuracy, speed and a bit of patience and can be exhilarating in the company of an experienced shooter. Whether a beginner or pro, we are happy to provide guns, ammunition and our expertise to make you a shooting star.
Be at arm’s length of the lions on our special guided tour through the lion enclosure. Accompanied by a wildlife guide, you’ll gain insight into the care of the lions, their habits and daily lives as well as the threats that they face in the wild. A very unique experience that you will remember.
