Dear Phileas Many thanks for your very descriptive review of all the wonderful things our guests can experience. Pity you didn't get to meet Nandi, the resident Spotted Eagle Owl during your stay ..that would have been a real bonus. Best regards Lindy

Reviewed 8 February 2018

We stayed here fr one night. Everything was perfect. We went on a water safari, saw over 20 species of animals. Great meals whilst enjoying great scenery. The chalets were comfortable with a really wonderful outside shower.

Hi Hayley, sorry for delay in my reply. I prefer March or April when the water has had time to filter some more after the rains (which hopefully we will have lots of). It is tough fishing in discoloured water. Hope that... More
