Rondavels (thatched huts)
These were the first units built at Old Joe’s Kaia. They are spacious with an organic feel from Africa.

Meals can be enjoyed inside the cosy lounge-dining area or outside on the balcony at tree-top level. The view from the balcony is graced by the mountain in the distance and the lush garden below. Many interesting birds can be observed from here.
