Watch the wildlife drink at the waterhole

A Quote From Our Guests

“ We just loved it! The open dining area and all the tent terraces have a view on the waterhole, which can get very busy with zebras, kudus, oryxes, and other types of antelopes. On our first night even a lioness came and rested at the waterhole for a while. ”
