The property is amazing. It's a perfect place for nature lovers.The walks are well signposted although some time indicators would be helpful. The staff are friendly and the food is excellent. Hope to return one day.

We did not stay at the lodge but visited for the dune safari only. It's a great way to learn a bit about the environment in the local area. Beautiful scenery. Very knowledgable guide. Really enjoyed it.
