Basic electricity is provided via solar panels, and limited mobile phone coverage facilitates a true African getaway from the hustle and bustle of city living. The cottage offers an exclusive and private setting to observe the life of HESC's cheetahs, and is the perfect base from which to explore the scenic wonders of the Lowveld, including (but not limited to) God's Window, Bourke's Luck Potholes, and Pilgrim's Rest. This is a birder's paradise, for the region supports a diverse and multi-kaleidoscopic number of bird species.
Another treat for feathered-enthusiasts is watching vultures descend from the sky in time to avail themselves of the pickings delivered to the "Vulture Restaurant" at the HESC each day (one tour of the Centre is included in the rate for accommodation). Khula's Cottage is set within its own enclosed and protected area, offering a private and personal experience. This is the ideal experience for self-drive clients who do not wish to compromise on comfort, but are looking for an authentic bush experience with great value for money.
