rooms: 40 • size: 35m2

Let yourself drift away in a suite reminiscent of Hemingway’s Africa, or take in the beauty of the reserve from the privacy of your patio.

spa suites

rooms: 16 • size: 50m2

Tucked away in the privacy of the russet bush willow trees surrounding our African spa, these suites feature magnificent floor-to-ceiling glass doors and frameless windows that offer expansive views of the reserve – even from your bathroom.

For those looking to find their zen, the spa suites come highly recommended, as does a spot of yoga from the privacy of your patio while overlooking the magnificence of the bush. Each suite is equipped with en-suite bathrooms, air conditioning, coffee and tea-making facilities, a minibar, as well as a lock-up safe and international plugs.

family suites

rooms: 4 • size: 70m2

Perfect for big family getaways or holidays with friends, these rooms are wonderfully expansive, allowing for loads of extra space to spread out, or to comfortably add extra beds for your little ones. With triple balconies, there is more than enough space and opportunity to bask in the quiet of the bush.

En-suite bathrooms offer privacy, and each suite is fitted with air conditioning to enhance your, and your family’s, comfort. Tea and coffee facilities are available, along with a minibar. For peace of mind, there’s a lock-up safe for your valuables and for our guests from abroad, international plugs for convenience.

royal suites

rooms: 2 • size: 40m2

Relax and unwind in the lap of luxury when you choose one of our Royal Suites. Wake up in the opulence of your bedroom before wandering down to your own private lounge to make a hot cup of tea or coffee to enjoy from a recliner couch on the spacious patio. You can continue to revel in your beautiful surroundings from the giant windows of the bathroom as you get ready for your day, as these suites boast en-suite bathrooms with dual showers overlooking the surrounding bush and resident wildlife.

A fully stocked minibar is available to you, along with international plugs and a lock-up safe. Air conditioning throughout the spacious suite will ensure you are always comfortable.

lounge, pool &
cocktail bar

Relax beside a roaring fire in our African themed lounge or saunter over to the bar for a cocktail to sip alongside the sparkling rim flow pool, all the while keeping an eye out for thirsty elephants taking a sedate stroll to the nearby watering hole.

For something more indulgent, make your way to the new 12m x 12m pool & cocktail bar. Whether it is a craft gin or classic cocktail in hand, relax on a poolside lounger, or escape the South African sun under a shaded alcove, as you take in the sounds of nature around you.
