I spent three nights in this old colonial hunting lodge. Beautiful scenery, lots of old world charm and three fabulous ladies who took excellent care of me and cooked some amazing meals. Can’t recommend it enough if you want to escape from the busy world.

Evans our guide was knowledgeable and entertaining. He found a lot of the big game for us, including lions, cheetah, rhino and elephant. Great two hours. Recommend a visit.
