          Well deserved break away and every penny well spend. Food was delicious! We loved the quiteness of the bush and the early morning game drives, very friendly staff. Accommodation well maintained. Will definitely go back.

          What's the best room choice for winter nights? And are there indoor bathroom facilities that wouldn't require us to take bath outdoors in the chilly evenings?

          The baths and toilet facilities are indoors. Only the shower is outside! The tented camps are all equally beautiful and equally warm! They are well equipped with electric blankets. The spa room is a little isolated.
