    Thanks for your review, Richard. Winter is a lovely time to visit Zululand as our temperatures are very mild, which makes for great game-viewing. As for swimming, your two boys are young Scots...they'd probably swim in the arctic without much grumbling! Hope to see you...More

    Dear Elena, Thanks for your glowing and descriptive review - much appreciated. Thanks also for mentioning the food; we certainly don't aspire to be the next Masterchef, but we do aim to make our meals both plentiful and tasty in a home-style kind of way!...More
