Amazing location and very tranquil with lovely views. Only downside was the rather old bed which was not comfortable. Everything else was top class so will definitely consider a return trip assuming the mattress is replaced.More

Yes, would be great for a 9 year old. The game is zebra and buck, so quite safe and interesting for a child. Lots of places to go walking and exploring.
