We have just spent a long weekend at Zulieka House and were extremely impressed by the accommodation, meals and staff. Lisa is a gem - full of information about the area and suggestions for excursions etc. The icing on the cake was the hippo in the river at the bottom of the garden! An excellent place and highly recommended.
