The original section of this
comfortable, charming home was built in 1906. The African thatch
provides a cool haven in summer and in winter the oil heaters in
each room, under floor heating in the main entertainment areas and
the open fireplace make it cosy and warm.
It is surrounded by magnificent trees some 100 years old. The garden
has numerous areas where guests can relax and its unique beauty
remain even during winter season. The patio surrounding the pool is
a great entertainment area where small children can safely play in
the water, of course under supervision. You can follow our babbling
stream through eighty acres of natural fauna and flora getting a
real feel of the bush, watching the birds and the bees enjoying the
flowers in our beautiful garden!
