The Natural Selection properties pride themselves on offering extraordinary safari experiences that conserve Africa’s diverse wildlife with the help of local communities, as well as showcase this incredible part of Africa by offering thrilling photographic safaris.

Hyena Pan lies nestled amidst shady mopane trees with sweeping views across a natural pan that boasts a steady source of water for the abundant wildlife that congregates here all year round.

There are also many species of birds that come here to drink and the camp offers plenty of activities such as daily game and night drives, as well as walking and photographic safaris to experience the wildlife up close. Or you can simply relax in the turquoise waters of the rim-flow splash pool with an ice-cold cocktail as the wildlife comes to you.
