We stayed in one of the traditional beehive huts. It was fantastic! It was raining and quite cool when we visited, but the beehive kept the warmth all night long. The surroundings are fantastic, having breakfast overlooking the hippo pool (although we only saw the crocodiles) and hanging out with pumbas and nyalas on the premisses. The buffet at the restaurant was very good, complete with soup, main courses and dessert. I would definitely go back!

The Sanctuary covers 4,560 hectares and comprises of a southern and northern section.
