The spacious living area has a large kitchen, a dining room and lounge. The kitchen is equipped with all mod-cons needed and also features a dishwasher, washing machine and tumble-dryer.

There are sun loungers and a swimming pool for guests to enjoy on those sunny days. The separate gazebo can be utilised to enjoy a breakfast outdoors.

For the colder nights, guests can gather around the boma on the river bed and enjoy the starry skies. For the fishing enthusiasts, guests have their own private fishing spot.

Guests can enjoy a walk in the bush, bird watching or head into town where there are plenty of shops and restaurants. The more adventurous can go quad biking and white water rafting to name but a few activities in the area.
