This place is lovely to see the natural botanical beauty of this part of the world. You can venture on horseback with a lovely guide, Sam, or in a 4x4, and I highly recommend Jo. She is a delight, and very passionate. She made the stay there for us. A lovely woman, and a character! The accommodation is a little tired but charming in its way. The food was ok despite the claims it is wonderful. The staff are not sincere, and rather pushy, although Yolande was wonderful. She stood out amongst them, and too bad all were not like here. A nice change from the animal safari. The grounds are lovely.
