Could not have been better! Clean, comfortable, quiet. Close to airports. Great food and staff. Wildlife, walking tour of a local village. We will definitely visit again upon our next trip East! What a delightful place..

Beautiful nice property, in the heart of a the wilds. But, recommended only if you plan to want to stay away from the rest of the world. They have zebras, ostrich, monkeys, a lazy crocodile. Good for photography. But no Wifi in rooms, No TV.More

The hospitality is great. The meals were great. The fact that there is no wifi in the rooms except in the lounge area is not ideal and something the owners must look at addressing. When travelling on business you need internet connectivity.More
