When we returned from our safari, we had a pleasant surprise in our room. Champagne, flowers everywhere and our bath was filled with flowers and lit candles. Now that is Great everything. Mike &...

Just absolutely loved it. From the beautiful rooms, lovely surrounds and friendly staff members. Our game drives were marvellous with our informative guides - Robert, Chase and Rick. Big hugs to the delightful Julia and her 'surprise' desserts. The personal touch sets this place apart. Hope to be back very soon.

A very welcoming place to stay. Lovely staff who are very attentive and knowledgeable. Amazing food. Zebras and other wildlife just wandering by makes it extra special. A special thankyou to Robert - we learnt so much and saw so much thanks to you
