You will enjoy panoramic views of this waterhole from the raised and spacious main area which comprises a lounge, pub, plunge pool and dining area where delicious meals are served. Consisting of ten large comfortable rooms your accommodation has en-suite facilities as well as an outdoor shower for you to immerse yourself in while enjoying the African skies. Less
