                      Our hosts Luke and Anita were very focused on providing an excellent level of service during our stay. From a wonderful Boma, to afternoon crumpets, to a well stocked bar, to delicious food, they tried very hard at every turn to make us feel at home. Would definitely return.

                      We enjoyed our stay tremendeously thanks to the outstanding hospitality of Anita and Luke. The breakfast leaves nothing to be desired. All the way to scones, muffins and flapjacks....After a day of golf we returned to chill in the bar. The dinner in the Boma is another highlight (lamb, steak or pot) followed by a fantastic tasting desert ( apple cake, cheede cake). One does not expect such great home cooking in the bush!!! Anita and Luke are a great team and are truly taking care of their guests.Heinrich + Beate

                      Just the peaceful break we needed. Gracious and generous hosts. Sorry no hippos came to visit the river. I don't believe we will EVER have such fabulous steaks again in our lives. Thanks for a great stay.
