The short drive on the dirt road triggers your interest until it opens into the beautiful courtyard of Mbewa Cabins. What a refreshing welcome after a full day driving. Canopied by indigenous trees and the play of thunder and lightning as we arrived made it spectacular.
Large spacious rooms, comfy beds and kitchen with stocked fridge and coffee station with rusks, what more could a traveler ask? Relaxing with a glass of sherry next to the sparkling pool was indeed all we needed… and then after a short walk to the nearby dam, a retreat to all birds in the area, we got the best surprise…. BUSHBABIES! Curious and fly they gave us entertainment until it got too dark to see them and they moved off for their nightly hunt.
Dinner and Breakfast was scrumptious and readied us for our next adventure.
We will definitely stay over here again on a trip to South Africa.
