The Lodge offers classic hospitality which is reflected in its 6 wildlife safari suites. The Master Suite, situated in the original colonial manor is opulent with old world charm and comfort. The room has a private veranda. The Heritage Suite, also in the manor is steeped in history and this is reflected in the classic décor also with a private veranda.
