    Huge room bungalows in a large property with springboks and a long stretch of private beach ideal for great sunsets (in winter; sure in summer you can do other activities). Great service, nice dinners and excelent breakfasts.

    A tranquil lodge with a relaxed atmosphere. Comfy and spacious rooms with a fireplace. The food is simple but satisfying. Do not expect to be rushed or rush anyone. Good for lazy days and bird watching, even from the breakfast table if you’re lucky.

    Wonderful weekend away with family. Delectable breakfasts. Spacious room, with fireplace stocked with over enough wood. Beautiful stretch of tranquil beach. Impressed by the attention to detail of the lodge and their willingness to go the extra mile for halaal friendly guests. Would definitely recommend!
