Tea and coffee on tap in the main area. Sockets in the room, so bring your kettle if you wish -if you have time to use it before the 0530 start for the safari. Great place, authentic and memorable. Well run with excellent owners and staff. Whats not to enjoy. Everywhere we stayed in SA had facilities for tea etc in room by the way.
