About
Certificate of Excellence
Nestled on the banks of the mighty Olifants River you will find a piece of heaven where elephant is but one of the regular visitors to its grassy planes. A haven for both human and animals alike where the tranquility and the magic of the African bush will embrace you. The main unit comprises of five bedrooms, two bathrooms with shower and bath. A spacious kitchen fully equipped with gas/electric combination stove fridge/freezer and deepfreeze. The large communal area consist of a dining room and lounge. The unit is serviced daily . The large viewing deck, overlooking the Olifants River offers a variety of sightings daily from the fish eagle catching its daily food to the gentle giants of the bush grazing quietly on the banks of the river. Welcome relief from the summer heat can be enjoyed in the splash pool while gripping sounds can be heard around the boma at night when the wood owl is calling its mate. For the adventurous spirits, game drive and bush walks are offered daily.
