As others have indicated, this is not a typical hotel or b&b. The house has been turned in to a lodge with five rooms. We stayed in the Parrot. We were able to park right outside our door for easy luggage moving. There were still a few steps but not bad.The bed was one of the most comfortable I've ever slept in. I enjoyed the jacuzzi tub and it is "step in." That also means it is "step out" which may be difficult for anyone with mobility issues. My knees don't do well with a high step so it was a little inelegant (and would be even if one showered instead of enjoying the tub). No television except in the large common room but it was more fun watching the animals grazing nearby. You are not permitted (for safety reasons) to leave the enclosed area but the view is amazing and animals are constantly changing. I woke up to deer right outside the door.
Breakfast is down at the "safari camp" and was plentiful and tasty. Because there were only a few guests breakfast was plated instead of buffet. (One note of caution: The next morning the server did not show up for work so no breakfast was available. It took several calls to get someone to the camp to prepare food, delaying activities that were scheduled). Our reservation for the behind the scenes tour, only available to those who spend the night on site, was never entered in the computer so we had to return the next morning for our tour. Still it was worth it and I'd do it again.
