What a fantastic weekend - as a regular traveller, I am not often surprised, but myself and my family loved what we found. Peaceful, serene and "at your own pace".

We had a fantastic stay at the Ufumene Game Ranch where we have stayed for 7 days in January 2013. The Fredericks family, the owners, are caring hosts and like to share their vaste knowledge about the nature and local customs/lifestyle. We enjoyed great fresh food, magical sunsets on the patio (with Gin Tonic), swims in the morning and walks...
