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

Hi there! October is a brilliant month! The tiger fish come on the bight about mid August as the water warms up after Winter, September is also a brilliant month but a little unpredictable with regards to cold fronts, so October is great, but expect rain showers in the late afternoon. Email Nomvula in Reservations to book your dates.
Hope to see you then.
