            View, room & facilities, staff

            The room was truly beautiful with a lot of attention to detail. This was something I noticed throughout Africa. Staff were extremely helpful with the owner even coming down to meet me and have me follow her to the boat house. The only drawback is that it is hard to find as I did not have GPS, but other than that absolutely perfect. After 3 weeks of full breakfasts while I was travelling I simply wanted something fresh and light, cut papaya was happily provided to me both mornings. The view was absolutely stunning and a lovely way to end my trip in Africa
