The rooms are a bit small, but modern and comfortable with air conditioning and heat. After five weeks in the bush, my wife wanted a pedicure, and they helped...

The full breakfast is impressive with home-baked bread and cake, jams and seasonal offerings such as smoked oryx. Coffee is available throughout the day and an honesty bar is a welcome addition. Heidi, Ben and staff offer a warm...
