          One of life's great experiences. Room, staff and location just fantastic, walking to breakfast in the morning seeing wildlife a stones throw away. The food at the restaurant was mouth watering. Would highly recommend to anyone.

          Fantastic food and atmosphere. Loved that it's run by locals. The wifi was free. Their game selection was huge. The camping was clean and had hot showers. Nice pool with kid's section. Would definitely stay there again.

          Hello! I've filled contact form twice on you website asking about accommodation and activity with sun people but got no response. Is there another way to contact you? We want to stay for one night 25-26.06 and visit Sun people on 25th evening. Could you provide the rates for different accommodation types and activities.

          Hi! When I went there a couple of months ago we just called. Their phone number is on the website. But they usually respond quickly to tripadvisor too. You picked the right place to go! Have an awesome stay:)
