The bush cottage on the other hand offers up two bedrooms, lounge, en-suite bathroom with bath and shower, air-conditioning and a verandah overlooking the surrounding bushveld (this is the ideal space for families).

Food & Wine:

An inviting swimming pool awaits with views out over the waterhole where if lucky one can watch elephants, buffalo and the rest of the wildlife species coming down to drink during the midday heat.
