    If you love the nature you feel like in paradise. Fantastic location on the river. The monkeys wake up every morning. In the river you can see crocodiles and sometimes a hippo. Upon request, a delicious breakfast and dinner is prepared.

    Good afternoon. Unfortunately we cannot allow fishing as this is a conservation area and further also very dangerous with the crocodiles and hippo's.
