We will definitely come back...

The facilities in the tented accommodation were up to the highest possible standard with solar powered lighting and hot water. The complimentary drinks locker were ideal to help with relaxation after amazing early morning safari drives. The man building is based around an 19th century farmhouse with appropriate furnishings and décor. The catering was excellent. The highlight of the visit...
