    We were very happy with our stay at the resort. We were there for 7 days and the resort had enough entertainment and facilities to keep us occupied and feel relaxed that there was no need to leave the resort for anything.

    Had a very pleasant stay and will most definitively return again. Seen a wide variety of Wild animals as well as bird species. The Pools perfectly clean and soothing to the heat to cool down. Perfect view from the Chalets. Thanks to all staff.

    I'm afraid that I cannot answer your question, but there might be the information you are looking for on their website. Failing that, you could e-mail them. I got lots of information that way. Good luck!
