The kitchen prepares lovely light lunches on the terrace or beside one of the pools, and in the evenings , after a sundowner, guests can sit down to a delicious three course dinner prepared by the chefs using the very best of local produce.

In the high season (October to May), Monday to Friday, the in- house masseur is able to offer guests a complimentary pampering session in the purpose built “treatment room and boma”.

Children are welcome and baby sitters are available on request. Children also have full use of the “Club Room” which has games, a TV with a DVD library, and a laptop computer.
