The bar is well-stocked with a diverse selection of soft drinks and spirits, and the lounge, furnished with comfortable sofas, provides a relaxing space to unwind.

The cosy accommodations at our lodge include rondavels and adjoining rooms, each thoughtfully equipped for your comfort, these spaces provide an ideal retreat.
