Aptly named after the busy bush babies which can be seen bounding about outside, this room is located in the lodge, up a short staircase from the main grand entrance. The highlight of this room are the sunset views from the elevated outside balcony which overlooks the main lodge, pool and surrounding bush. Though it may not have an outdoor shower it does have a large walk-in wardrobe / dressing area, double vanity basin, walk-in rain shower and a stylish freestanding tub. Large windows make this room lovely and light, but pom-pom lined blinds can be pulled down with ease for privacy. Melvin & Moon chairs padded with Lo-Ki beetle cushions create a cosy corner perfect for an afternoon of reading or simply relaxing. Exquisite gold-side tables and elegant lamps sit beside the four posted bed and wildlife themed finishes can be found all over this room, from the animal artwork, to the ostrich egg detailed pillows. Bush Baby is ideal for the discerning traveller.
Back in the beginning of the Safari Moon venture a resident honey badger would often visit this room deck to get to the tangled leadwood, which at the time was home to a hive of honey-making bees! Named after this tenacious creature, this room is decorated in true “Out Of Africa” style with Melvin & Moon Chairs, a magnificent mahogany chest from India, big-cat book holders, a Silk Persian and a local art piece by Corbus Van der Walt. An ornate Indian door opens to reveal a Daniel Novella piece and a passage from the main lodge to both Honey Badger & Nyala but there are also private entrances to each of these rooms. Your private deck is cosily enclosed and raised above a succulent garden, this room gets a beautiful golden glow in the evenings, with dappled light from the leadwood which is built into the quirkily shaped deck. The bathroom has a large Victorian Claw bath, double basin vanity and an indoor / spacious outdoor shower. Honey Badger is for the Old Africa enthusiasts.
Named after the prickly porcupines that are often seen from the deck after dark, this room in on ground level and is one of the most spacious at 85 SQM in size and the most secluded of all the suites. Elegant touches include a Daniel Novella piece, Persian rugs, Melvin & Moon chairs, a large leopard oil painting by James Stroud, hanging palm lights and a 2.4m Ardmore wall hanging, making this the most colourful of spaces. The outside seating area nestles in nature and is particularly perfect for romantic sundowners. Indoors there are more lounge areas to sit back and enjoy the eclectic artwork which adorns this room. The bathroom boasts a double vanity basin, free-standing stone bath and both a spacious indoor / outdoor rain shower. Porcupine is for the wilder at heart.
