          Beautiful and spacious accommodation - quite unique in pleasant surroundings. The decor is tastefully down in an ethnic but luxurious style. Well worth the stay - extraordinary value! Owner managed. Highly recommended.

          Beautiful location with own hiking trail to a Baobab tree and a waterfall. Local art and history of the region on display. Self-catering unit is large and well-equipped. Swimming-pool, WiFi, good breakfast.
