What a magical place to be pampered and amazed by all the beauty and wonder of Africa! We were in awe of the knowledge of Werner and each guide, it was such an education for us. The food was delicious and elegantly presented, a surprise to each meal. It’s hard to leave and we will have memories for life. Thank you Christine, Werner, Michelle and Morne and all the staff!

What a wonderful stay! Thank you very much for very much for everything! I felt like a queen. Will never forget the walking safaris and the roaring lions- very impressive. Thanks you to Jacques and Sam for the luxury safaris just for myself. And Judith, thanks for the lovely chat.
