The hotel is truly amazing. The first thing you see when you arrive is the view. The grounds, rooms, food, staff, views, wildlife and service is by far the best we had in South Africa. The owner Archie is brilliant, he is so helpful and makes sure he meets each and everyone of his guests and helps them have the best experience possible. We went on the morning safari with Peter, who is full of up to date interesting information and on the second evening we went to Schotia game reserve which again was fab. Just for an extra experience Archie encouraged us to go on a short plane ride to the game reserve which was an amazing experience. All in all I can't complain about this place and anyone visiting will not be disappointed.
