Overview

The understated luxury of this traditional, vintage lodge promises an authentic safari experience to all of its visitors. It offers 15 luxuriously appointed en-suite chalets, each with air-conditioning, and unrivalled bush views. The naturally-furnished interiors of each bungalow reflect the wonders of nature outside.
