          Amazing place with absolutely fantastic staff! Highly recommend the spa as well. Food is fantastic and I just loved the view from my tent. The morning safaris were fabulous and the respect of nature is very apparent - not always the case with guides.

          Hi Zainab, thanks for your question! All of the tents at Sanctuary Olonana come with two queen sized beds, however, both beds are in the same room. I hope this helps!
