Lovely to have you stay with us and thank you for the awesome review.

Comfortable and well appointed hotel with a distinct African feel and a fantastic open air restaurant and verandah to enjoy your meals on. Staff are very helpful and we enjoyed sightings of game from the balcony as an unexpected bonus.
