The sundowner deck connects the pool to the thatched bar and the covered patio. An African boma, where a fire is lit on certain nights makes you feel like you are in the middle of the African bush.

Spent 2 days with Caroline and Doug and felt completely at home. Beautiful set up, lovely hosts and very close to Sandton and Joburg city centre. Great home cooked meals if you want and great company. Only place to stay if you are Johannesburg.
