                      A lovely place, tranquil setting. Lovely big tree with dozens of birds chattering - wonderful!Our room was impeccable with all modern amenities we are used to. High quality linen and a good kingsize bed made us rest very well. We'll definitely come back next time we're on the way to the Kalahari!

                      We loved the friendly hospitality. The room quite small but comfortable and very comfy bed. Also loved the included breakfast served in a cheerful coffee shop on the premises
