    Kings house vs rondavel? We have the opportunity to stay and are super excited. We can't seem to choose between sharing a place with another couple at kings house or getting a rondavel and sharing the communal bathroom. We are a couple and kind like our privacy but want the authentic experience. Also scared about communal kitchen how can we be sure our stuff will be safe?
