A totally different and enjoyable stay in an exceptional location. The lodge we stayed in was comfortable and spacious, and to draw the curtains in the morning to the faces of zebras looking in at us was quite amazing.

A four star guest lodge with five star panoramic views of bush and sea. Friendly service and delicious cooked meals. Impala browse nearby while zebra graze the lawns. Sit back on the deck and enjoy. If you look carefully you will see bushbuck too.
