We needed privacy and quiet time . The ideal place. The 2 mattresses that make the double bed was a problem but we stayed for one night and did not asked for it to be changed.

A true hidden "gem stone". Nice lodges, luxuary and authentic atmosphere. Great pool, excellent air-conditioning. Dinner superb, with camp-fire.

The hospitality was excellent and the neatness is top class.
Jacques du Toit Dec 2013
We arrived quite late in the evening and the welcome was excellent at a time when you actually expected the staff to be sleeping already. Our privacy and needs were really considered and accommodated. You really appreciate the beauty of nature and everything melts together to form part of a peaceful surrounding.
