Classic Suite

Guests walking into our classic suites are struck immediately by the sense of space. The room seems to stretch into the bush beyond, and the high windows bring the sky and the trees right into the room. The lounge drops down from the level of the bedroom area and the space flows out to the covered deck, a comfortable area to sip a drink, watch the passing animals and birds and just relax. The bathroom is large and also looks directly onto the bush. Each suite has a spacious bath, inside and outside shower and separate toilet. All have air-conditioning, fan, safe, gauzy, romantic mosquito nets, tea and coffee facilities and a mini bar. These rooms are large enough to share with young children and still enjoy the space.

Premier Suite

The ultra luxurious Giant Eagle Owl and King Cheetah suites feature a separate bedroom, dining area, larger lounge, main bathroom with huge shareable bath, inside shower and outside shower, second bathroom and private pool with wooden deck. Elephants frequently take a quiet drink at these two pools on the way down to the larger pools in front of the main guest areas. They add a special element to enjoying the pool, or relaxing on the covered deck. The suites have air-conditioning, fan, safe, mosquito nets, mini bar and tea and coffee facilities. The decanter of sherry is there for your enjoyment, with our compliments. Whether chosen by honeymooners or by discerning guests wanting a little more luxury, the Premier suites are an ideal choice.
