Outdoor showers provide some of the most scenic al fresco bathing on the African continent.
Delicious meals are served in the dining area or unforgettable bush banquets are offered in bush clearings under the African night sky. Comfortable sitting areas offer the perfect vantage point for viewing the wildlife roaming the bush below.
