From Nelson to Ollie to Natasha. Malaki , Kay, Nellie...and I am missing many, the staff at Leroo La Tau is truly special. Dining at a communal table for all meals makes the stay feel like you are visiting family.
The food was all home made; the fresh bread alone makes me want to go back. The wines were delicious and plentiful.
The tea breaks served while on safari are wonderful..coffee, tea any alcoholic beverage desired along with a different, home made snack are offered 2 times a day along with a 3p snack served at the Camp.
The complimentary laundry is a definite plus. Laundry was picked up daily and left folded and ironed by day's end.
The accommodations, little huts overlooking the animals in the wild were perfect. The glass, floor to ceiling windows in the bedroom and bathroom allowed one to see wildebeests, impalas, giraffes .. From the room or terrace.
I cannot say enough about the Management staff who lead a remarkable gracious, warm, engaging team.
Though I did not use the pool, one is available as well as a library/ reading room in the main house which overlooks the wildlife.
The food must be highlighted. My friend and I went on a day trip to the Salt pans and an extraordinary lunch was packed for us, all served on dishes and so plentiful: pasta, home made vegetable quiches, home made breads, chicken and fruit along with wine and other beverages. I was not expecting such an elaborate and well planned out lunch break.
It was very sad to leave such a warm group of people who exceeded all expectations, all while, being so genuine.
I travel extensively throughout the world to 5 star hotels. Leroo La Tau will remain among my most memorable destinations.
Thank you Leroo La Tau! I miss you already and am only back 2 days.
