Arrange an exhilarating safari, visit one of the near-by Addo ‘Big 5’ private game reserves or simply go for a walk on one of the many trails on our grounds. Afterwards, have a refreshing swim in our pool, or sundowners on the veranda before sitting down to a gourmet dinner by candlelight. We encourage you to select your wine from our private collection from the walk-in cellar before your meal. We trust that here, you will experience true South African hospitality at its best.
