This one of the nicest places I have stayed at in Africa. The rooms are very beautiful and extremely clean and well maintained and spacious with a small patio in front of each room. The breakfast was delicious in a beautiful breakfast room (with some antilope living in the garden visiting). Internet is fast, but at an extra cost. As...

We were able to heat our Bolognaise and cook pasta for the first night. The staff were so obliging in serving breakfast for our group by 6 am...

Rooms are spacious and comfy. Welcome is warm and friendly, all staff are so thoughtful and kind. Special shout out to Veronica for making me feel so at home. Don't forget your swimsuit for the pool and camera for the wee deer in the back garden. Breakfast is lovely and substantial, and meals are now available at night.
