From the time Willem Potgieter met us at the door until we left four days later we were treated like we were the only guests. As I normally stay in budget hotels, the 131 is easily the best place I have ever stayed. The rooms are perfectly inviting with every detail well thought out. The hotel restaurant served the best food I've had in Africa. From their version of a continental breakfast to the exquisite dinner entrees, everything was perfect. The team even made a to-go meal for our safari as we left long before breakfast started. I cannot say enough good things...STAY HERE!
and thank you to Willem and his awesome staff.
