The seven chalets, all en-suite, offer indoor and outdoor showers and a bathtub which boasts incredible views of the surrounding landscape through large glass windows. Features also include air conditioning and a private patio. Lodge features include a bar, safety deposit box, secure parking, free Wi-Fi in public areas, library and outdoor swimming pool. Dinner is enjoyed at the boma under the African sky and the lounge offers a relaxing space where one can enjoy a drink next to the fireplace.
