The bungalows are nice too and offer more privacy, being a bit away from the main building. The food is simple but excellent and you can have... More

The view of the hills from the room, friendliness of the staff, delicious food and spacious rooms made it a fantastic stay for me. I felt safe since I... More

What bowled us over was how knowledgeable the entire team was about wild life, and how they ensured we experienced wild life to the fullest. This despite... More
