You will experience nothing but pure magic as you join us on our treks, bush walks and Glamping at Ahaspokuna. Your entitlement for a stay of two nights is four walks, which will leave you mesmerized as you are taken down paths of the wild and the mysterious by our walking safari specialists. They will guide you and caution you against startling any of the flora and fauna of the wild and make it a thrilling and exciting walk through the bush.
What’s more exciting than a walk through the jungle at night? You get to experience just that with us as you get to have a peek (from a well-hidden spot) at the animals that come to drink at the waterhole.
