In autumn the butterfly-shaped leaves change to striking hues before falling off in September and October. We found these leave on our walk round camp.

Take a walk round the camp and get some macros of the Mopane worms, moths, flowers and other little critters, during the day and also at night...
There are a number of activities on offer at Mopani rest camp: like guided game drives, guided walks and bush braais. Please ask at reception when you check in.
The Mopane Shrub, Red Bushwillow Trees and Sweet Grass, provide rich grazing for Impala, Warthog, Elephant and Buffalo.
The game sightings in this area have improved over the years; we have had some good sightings such as lion, elephant, buffalo, rhino, leopard and cheetah!
If you are patient, drive slow and go on your game drive when the animals are most active (cooler hours of the day) you will find them!
Ore was the male Rhino the rangers introduced to the Mopani area some years back.
The Mopani area is rich in the rare sightings....
The Shipandani and Pioneer dam bird-hides are close to the camp and are good places to sit and wait for the animals.
