This place is a little out of town but it's well sign-posted and easy to find. The owners have clearly put a lot of effort into making the place comfortable for travelers but also a little different from the average hotel room or guesthouse. It is a very comfortable place and you'd certainly never forget that you were in Africa.... My wife was a little freaked by some of the wildlife- you will perhaps see the odd fairly large spider but they are not dangerous and, hey, you're in Africa so what would you expect?! As for the review noting that it's noisy with dogs barking all night- yep, you will hear dogs but I've never stayed anywhere in an African town where you can't hear dogs, cockerels, traffic, a call-to-prayer or something! The mattress was extremely comfortable. This is NOT a five star hotel- it is a guesthouse offering something a little different...
The breakfast was decent enough and the hosts will direct you to various dining options in the evening. I followed Rene's recommendation and had the beef fillet at the Thalamakane Lodge- quite simply outstanding and only 4km up the road! Both hosts are wonderful- caring, interested, helpful. They really help to make the place and to ensure that you will have a pleasant stay.
The outside showers are lovely! I would heartily recommend this place.
