Guest Comments

We spent one night in the 3 bedroom self catering unit. Our only complaint is that the stove top was painfully slow...took an hour to cook a batch of scrambled eggs !!

It was our first time at a game lodge and we would not have wanted to go anywhere else,it was a amazing experience for us all and we thank you very much
