Eight thatched tented bush suites are raised off the forest floor all positioned under a canopy of Zululand forest.
All suites offer very comfortable bedding draped with mosquito nettings, a dressing room and wooden deck. The en-suite bathrooms are of an open-air nature while being enclosed by a reed boma, truly romantic.
A honeymoon suite is available and is set away from the other suite for the ultimate in privacy.
Excellent cuisine accompanied by good wines all served up under the shade of the surrounding forest, picnic lunches and boma styled buffets.
