That´s what our guests say about us.

I stayed over for one night. Tommy and his staff are the most naturally welcoming hosts. It felt as if we'd known each other for years after 5 minutes. Unlike many other corporate/commercial places, you feel immediately at home here, like you're staying over at a friend's house. The rondavels are comfortable, with all mod cons and the gardens are kept immaculate. A truly wonderful experience.

Everything was exceptional! The location of the lodge by the river, the warm hospitality, the tranquility in the middle of nature and the unique wildlife around the lodge make the stay a memorable one. In addition, the excellent food, both of which cook on the team every evening excellent menus, plus very good wines. We enjoyed the stay and want to come back as soon as possible, thank you it was unique!
