      Thank you Dave and your team for an excellent long weekend breakaway. Your place is stunning and your hospitality amazing. The finesse with which breakfast was served and your enthusiasm was out of this world. Hope to see you again in the future. Thank you again. Leon and  Louisa Bester

      We enjoyed our stay at Sunbird Lodge and found the surroundings excellent. The dining room was interesting and the breakfast was more than adequate.  If we ever go in that area again we wouldn't  hesitate to stay at the Sunbird Lodge.
