The biggest attraction on this wilderness trail is the Sweni River, which is surrounded by open flat thorntree savannah, where large herds of game concentrate at certain times of the year. This in turn attracts large concentrations of predators, and the biggest drawcard of the trail if one is lucky is to experience predators versus prey. Hearing lions roar at night occurs frequently, as sound travels far in this open landscape. The Sweni River accounts for frequent sightings of the shy nocturnal white backed night heron whilst the Mozambique night jar and scops owl are dominant night calls from camp. The flatness and remoteness of the area offers excellent star gazing opportunities. The camp is situated on the Sweni River and is surrounded by open plains. A covered lapa allows one to view the surrounding plains and associated game throughout the day.
