The central thatched boma faces out over the swimming pool and is the ideal place to either relax in the hammocks or sit in the shade to adjust to the relaxing pace of Zululand. Life does not get much better than gazing out over the bank of the estuary in the evening, whilst the braai crackles in the background. Join us for sundowners under our thatched boma and you will see why we say that the best sunsets always come from Africa.
