Fodor's Review

Thatch roofs and earth tones are part of the traditional African kraal (settlement) feel at this villa set around a central lawn and pool area, with stunning views and rooms facing outward for privacy. All rooms have outdoor and indoor showers and open onto a private veranda. Two rooms and the suite have private plunge pools. Meals are served around a fireplace, and you may choose wines from the extensive cellar. As a villa, this lodge can only be booked as the

whole property (ideal for a group), not per indvidual room
