The first time I beheld the collection of natural wonders, something extraordinary happened, as I embraced the expanse of its exotic beauty, it embraced me. Rip Miller - Owner

Overall it was a wonderful experience - the food, the service, the accommodation, the views, the game drives, the walks on the beach, the picnic on the beach, the wellness centre - truly made our stay a 10 star experience. Thank you!

My partner and I felt like we were an afterthought, like nobody cared to register that we were coming or had arrived. A frustrating let-down. I was really looking forward to this. Not a fan of that rock-hard bed, which the staff was quick to state, was world-class. I am still in awe that this place has a 5-star rating!

We, traveling as a couple with a 4-year old child, enjoyed our stay very much and can highly recommend staying here! The room (we stayed 4 nights in Villa 3) was spacious, clean and had an exceptional view. It had two bathrooms, a comfortable bed and comes with a daily restocked minibar. The restaurant had great views as well and daily changing 3-course menus for lunch and dinner. We also had lunch at the beach and it was a fantastic experience. The food was of great taste and quality. The wine menu was great as well. The staff in general was very professional and welcoming. The location itself is out of this world. The beach is the largest I have ever seen with near endless dunes. We walked for hours and never saw other people. The property itself is really beautiful. The activities offered on the property are limited to game drives through the property. We do not need more but if you seek more action or have very active children, this might not be the place. You can see giraffes, zebras and a lot of “deer“-like animals. Desmond, who was our ranger during the stay was really great and knowledgeable and we enjoyed the time with him a lot! He answered all of our many questions, was really nice to our daughter and nothing seemed too much of an effort to him. He really made our stay perfect! There are only two small things where we would see potential for improvement. We were missing a child menu and even though the spa treatment I had was excellent, I would have enjoyed some more pampering around it (something to drink before and after, some time to “get back to reality“ after the massage,…).

Lovely relaxing venue where guests are made to feel special. There are larger game resorts if you want to see lots of animals but the game drive was still enjoyable and the guide was very knowledgeable.
