What a find! We were heading out of Botswana back into SA and needed a one night stopover. Not expecting much we were pleasantly surprised to find a neat, well organised, fully kitted spot with friendly and helpful staff. We were 3 families staying in the 4-sleeper log cabins. Yes, they are tiny but the beds were comfy and we loved the surroundings. Communal bathroom and kitchen were clean and had everything we would need. The kids loved all the animals (pig, ducks, chickens) and even had a quick dip in the pool.
