The hosts where awesome, left us to relax and enjoy, at the same time they paid attention when needed, nothing was too much to ask. Friendly people and we enjoyed the picnic, game drive and shooting range.

Amazing place, quiet and serene. Vast open lands, fresh air and beautiful animals and flora. Took my mother for a birthday weekend, loved every minute of it! Definitely will be back in the future.
