Wonderful accommodation. Facilities met expectations for budget. Food was great....perhaps too much at only criticism.

Amazing! Would go back here in a heartbeat and so wish we could have stayed longer. The staff are just beautiful and so kind. They also did an amazing little honeymoon dinner for us on our last night there, by the pool and with a bottle of champagne, as well as filling our bushveld bath for us!
