The peaceful ambience is reflected in luxurious accommodation and attention to detail. Magnificent rose and indigenous gardens flow around the palm-fringed pool and waterfall. The distinctive waterside dining room creates an enchanted mood for sundowners and unsurpassed viewing of rare South African waterfowl (one of a few places in South Africa where most species can be seen).
