The Homestead, with large sliding windows opening up to views of the surrounding bush, is a sole-use villa offering exclusive accommodation in 4 suites ideal for families and small groups. A private butler is on hand to attend to daily requirements.
In an interactive kitchen a private chef caters to your personal tastes and choice of recipes which are served around a communal table. If so desired, picnics are also prepared for extended game drives.
The guest area presents an intimate dining space, private outdoor boma, courtyards, ponds and a sparkling swimming pool inviting you to take a refreshing dip in the heat of the day.
For those in need of extra exercise, a gym with views over the wilderness provides an opportunity for a good workout, and for the less energetic, massage therapy is offered in the privacy of individual suites.
Game drives with a dedicated game ranger and tracker in a private 4x4 vehicle, are available at the sole discretion of guests, with no set routine or timetable.
Nature walks, excellent birdwatching, riverboat cruises and canoeing along the Mzinene River are also on offer. Some optional activities at an additional cost are coastal flights, snorkelling, scuba diving, deep sea fishing, turtle viewing, horse riding and cultural visits.
As the area is unfenced visitors are required to be vigilant at all times and not permitted to wander through the grounds at night unless accompanied by a guard.
