Our main viewing deck overlooking the Great Letaba river is a favourite amongst our guests and great sightings of hippo, crocodile, vervet monkey and a wide variety of birds can be seen. Listen to the call of the fisheagle whilst a full farmhouse breakfast is served on the deck daily. Special dinners on the deck can be booked. Our swimming pool area set amongst plush well manicured gardens surrounded by bushveld and large trees is exclusive to our guests ensuring total privacy. Comfortable well appointed and tastefully decorated chalets are offered set in plush well manicured gardens with bushveld surrounds and include three river units set under large jackalberry trees overlooking the Great Letaba River and two poolside units set under large Mopani trees.
