The word "ISINKWE" (pronounced "I" - "sink" - "we"), is the Zulu translation of the Thick Tailed Bushbaby. These strange nocturnal animals are classified under the primate family and frequent the lodge at night. Their distinctive and thrilling night-time cries are part of the evening bush sounds.Keep a look out for them in the evenings during your stay.
