Lounge & Pool

An ideal place to relax with a good book or soak up the surrounding scenery, the lounge and pool deck are excellent vantage spots from which to game view too. Alternatively, go for a swim in the pool to cool off. The friendly barman is on duty all day to entice you with tantalising cocktails.


Breakfast and lunch are served in the elegant, open-sided dining room, which offers an enchanting dining experience. Décor is contemporary, understated and inspired by surrounding nature. The wine cellar is a focal point in the room, with the fine South Africa estate collection showcased behind frameless glass.

The traditional outdoor boma is the favoured setting for dinner, weather permitting. Illuminated by firelight and starry skies, diners will enjoy diverse and tasteful cuisine conjured by chefs right before them. Open fires are often used for cooking too, in true African style.

Lost in Africa
