What a delightful treat. The accommodations were superb and the staff very attentive. The game drive and the sunset cruise were exceptional. What a treat to see the black rhinos. The setting overlooking the water hole allowed viewing of animals as they visited.

We are a mature couple who took 6 friends for an "African Experience". We loved the setting, the beautifully preserved buildings with immaculate furniture took us back in time. The gardens were amazing. Sitting on the veranda overlooking the waterhole during the day was always pleasant and full of surprises. The staff and food was always great.
