Junior Rangers Programme


With various activities to take part in including game drives, bush walks, picnicking and more, Kwa Maritane and Bakubung have developed something even more engaging, the Junior Rangers Programme.

Game drives


In the evenings, guests are taken on a game drive, which brings you a lot closer to the big game.

This enables you to get within five to 10 metres of the larger predators, even while they're feasting on a recent kill.

Located on the outer rim of an extinct volcano which erupted some 1300 million years ago, lies Kwa Maritane, ‘The Place of the Rock’.

Overlooking a unique granite dome is Kwa Maritane, Legacy’s oldest and most famous bush lodge, host to families, businessmen and delegates from all over the world. The lodge is famous for its hide and waterhole linked by a 180m long tunnel, its outstanding cuisine and the hospitality of its staff. Guests can enjoy a host of recreational activities including dawn and evening Big Five game drives in the tender care of our experienced game rangers, bushveld boma barbeques, golf and other recreational activities at nearby Sun City, or simply relaxing in the lodge’s beautiful gardens and restaurant.
