This place caters for a large wedding party that requires accommodation. Near Ballito town yet private. Also not to far from King Shaka International Airport. Nice activities in the area as well. (Fishing, game drive, hot air balloon, etc.)

Food was fantastic. Game drive refreshing. Setting beautiful. Only complaint was that accommodation has no aircon! The fan on offer just didnt touch the unbelievable heat that night, doors couldnt be left open because of the venue. The room was lovely, but the heat put a real dampener on the weekend.

Warm welcoming, amazing dinner with fast and polite service. Bar has a lovely outside area. Tent was beautifully set up and a breathtaking view from the deck. The sundowner game drive was informative and stopped off at a beautiful view with amazing snacks champagne and wine. We will be back again for sure!

We stayed here for 1 night and enjoyed the break in a perfect location. We had a room with a view of the dam, and it was spacious, with a king-size bed, kitchenette area, and spa bath and shower, and a small balcony overlooking the dam. The luxury tents looked really comfy too, and we saw a range of animals...

Pleasant stay for my family and I. Friendly staff and were always keen to help out. Game drive was a bit expensive for what you are offered to see. Rooms are clean. Restaurant food is great. I will definitely be back soon.
