These are honest reviews, both good and bad, from our travellers who visited this property.
That was definitely the absolute highlight from our holidays. We got an extreme warm, helpful and personal hospitality. The food was excellent.
Very personable hosts. Ivy cooked a great breakfast and Johan took us on a very good game drive. Accommodation very spacious, clean and tidy, but the pool was not sparkling!
This was a great place. Since we were just passing thru, arriving late and leaving early the next day, with no time to do any activities, it was perhaps farther off the road than might have been ideal. But we were booking last-minute, so perhaps other more convenient places weren't availalable.
