Each room has a private veranda to allow you to watch our animals roaming in the bush.


When you’re sitting on your veranda be sure to keep an eye out for our hand-reared impala. She is all grown up now, but still likes to stay close to the houses when she is not playing with the nyala babies.

Baby Bella was very demanding as a little one, she let you know when it was dinnertime by squeaking... loudly!


Of course there are other things to do; such as luxuriate in your ensuite bathroom.
