At our venue

At the main lodge you will find a swimming pool, little sauna (2 beds), tennis court, pool table, darts and jeux de boule. Obviously you are more than welcome to relax in the shade with your loved one(s) or read a good book. Our tranquil gardens are filled with colourful flowers and butterflies and together with the surrounding bushveld they are a true birder's paradise with over a 100 species recorded!
