                  we thoroughly enjoyed our stay at Puruma and would recommend it to anyone who is looking for that outdoor, relaxed, farm feeling, as long as you can get used to the lions roaming just outside your tent throughout the night.The Hosts are friendly and welcoming and accommodated all of our requests.The venue was easy to find with accurate directions and gps coordinates.

                  We thoroughly enjoyed our three nights at Puruma Pride: the food was great; the room comfortable and our hosts were incredibly welcoming and accommodating.

                  The tent itself was comfortable with firm mattresses and clean linen. It overlooked the lion enclosure at very close range, which was interesting.The breakfast was of high quality, served efficiently and with the friendly concern of the management. I would give 4 stars except for the fact that the bathrooms were not adjacent to the tent.
