Chalets are, elegantly decorated and equipped with air-conditioners with a heating option.

Bathrooms are en-suite and have indoor and outdoor showers to suit your needs. There are also porcupine quills lamp shades found in the bathrooms and the lapa, which were handmade by the owner.
Our 3 private wooden bush cabins are for those real nature lovers situated each on different levels on the hillside in our safari area. Walking distance from the main lodge and parking area.
