The place was right where we want. The Safafi house was excellent for a family of 8 with private swimming pool. The sound of wild animals and smell of plants was much stress relief for festive season holidays. Definitely will book again.
My daughter stayed at Bona Bona and after the battery of her car went flat, I phoned reception and they assisted us immediately which has put us at ease as we are staying in Thabazimbi. Nearly thought I had to drive all the way to Bona Bona. Thanks very much to all the personnel for such quick response.
Die ontvangs, gesellige kuier saam met die eienaar, die kos en slaapplek sal my verseker laat teruggaan na Bona Bona. Ons geselskap het die ervaring as baie goed ervaar!
