The two very kind people running this lodge will go the extra mile to make your stay and trip amazing! Breakfast was exceptional, extra maps were provided for day trips. The rooms are spacious, good airconditioning and nice patio to be able to sit outside privately.

Mine was a flying visit, late arrival and early departure, having said that I received a warm welcome from the owners who really made me feel at home. Would definitely say there again, highly recommended.

The owners of the guesthouse were so friendly and helpful. The breakfast was amazing. The room was big and the beds were perfect. The guesthouse and especially the owners made us wish that we stayed longer.
