Guests can choose between various types of accommodation, ranging from stylish suites to rustic waterfront cabins.

The idyllic setting indeed has something to offer for everyone – from the daring adventure-seekers to those who just yearn for a quite getaway.


15 stylish suites opening onto cool verandas set in a lush indigenous garden with views of the Oliphant’s riverbed and mountains.


Only 5 minutes drive from the main house, you will find our 4 unique waterfront cabins.

They are built from alien poplar wood that we removed to make way for endemic brush and offer breathtaking views over the lake with abundant birdlife with 162 recorded species and is a malaria free area. The cabins are fully equipped, except for television.

Perfect for a family or romantic getaway.

Canoeing and fishing at the lake is ideal for families and to enjoy the scenery and nature around you. Each of the 4 cabins has 2 bedrooms (interleading ceiling), bath and shower, lounge, kitchenette and a large fireplace and deck.
