  • What's not to love!

    From the moment you step in you are welcomed by a stunning scent, followed by the beauty of a modern, clean and well laid out chalet and then you see the breathtaking views! If that's not enough the hosts are super friendly, helpful and such a pleasure to chat with. We met Johan on the game drive which was extremely informative and interesting. You definitely get to see animals... Read this review
