A sense of colonial history is tastefully exuded throughout the lodge as this was originally where the plantation’s administration took place during the early 1900’s. The resort wholeheartedly reflects this heritage and fuses with it authentic African décor, that does well to make guests feel sufficiently tranquil after a long days safari. There are also modern touches that will serve to remind you that you have not in fact time travelled, just travelled to one of the most beautiful properties of its type.
