2 Bedrooms , 2 Bathrooms , Sleeps 6
Hoedspruit, Limpopo Province
Situated on the banks of the Olifants river, within a 1000 hectare Nature Reserve with giraffe, zebra, nyala, waterbuck, kudu, jackal, warthog, wildebeest, crocodiles, hippo's etc.
The thatched chalet is open-plan with a kitchen with a fridge, a queen-size bed, and a loft with twin beds. There is a steep ladder to the loft so not suitable for very small children or older folks. There is an enclosed bathroom with a toilet, hand basin and shower.
Next to the chalet is an open kitchen overlooking the pool and pool deck. It has a large fridge and a gas oven / stove. The pool deck has braai facilities and an eight seater table under shade.
The 2 sleeper thatched rondavel is on the other side of the kitchen. The bathroom is only separated by a half wall, and there is no kitchen. Cooking needs to be done in the open kitchen.
