Our room was at the back and faced the road, but we couldn't hear any traffic noise. The lawn gave us a chance to see warthogs and mongooses grazing right outside our door. We had a room with two...

All our tours were enjoyable and well organised. Staff were friendly and looked after our every need. Dinners at the restaurant were a bit hit and miss but the breakfasts were...
