With four such thatched lodges on the property, each one is positioned to maximize privacy and security and furnished with a distinctly African décor. Each, stand alone lodge incorporates a lounge / dining-room, fully equipped kitchen, bathroom with bath and shower, bed room with king bed or single beds (to your preference) with two single beds on the mezzanine floor (2nd bedroom) in our family lodges. Each lodge has its own private braai / barbeque area. With plenty of water on site, we are self contained with our own generator. Each lodge is fitted with an alarm and safe for the safety of your valuables.More
