Amazing, what a stay. What an extra-ordinaire place to stay. We had only one night in the Elephant-house, but enjoyed every minute of it. It has lots of space, even for 8 people and we were a party of 2. It was our first bathroom...More

We stayed here in the treehouse for a couple of nights. The owner and staff were incredible and did so much for us. It felt very luxurious having our meals on our own private roof terrace. We loved just lounging on our bed and watching...More

Hello, Considering booking at the River Lodge, but needed to know if any creepy crawlies-especially lizards-were spotted inside the villas/chalets/bathrooms. We have 2 extremely lizard/cockroach phobic people in the group! Thanks
