Generous courtyards, ponds and living areas that open up to the landscape beyond embrace the surrounding bush, inviting it into the spacious interiors. Large sliding windows give a sense of space and light. Beds are positioned to face the waking bush but there's no need to jump out of bed early - with a dedicated game ranger and tracker, as well as a private game drive vehicle, guests set their own game drive times.
The focus is on stylish comfort, coupled with genuine hospitality from the personal chef and butler. An interactive kitchen prepares communal meals shared with special people around a spacious table or savored as a delectable picnic on an extended game drive.
Open viewing decks look out onto magnificent bush views, while the sparkling swimming pool is surrounded by loungers with plump cushions. A small but well equipped gym boasts incredible view of the wilderness outside. As night closes in, the glorious colors of an African sunset steal over the skies as the warm light of dozens of lanterns creates an intimate dining space in the private outdoor boma.
