This is such an amazing house, in the perfect location. We didnt get to see the giraffe but there were other game roaming around past the house. Its truly a place to let down your guard, relax and rejuvenate.

We went up there with little expectations as we are accustomed to pictures being prettier than the actual premises, boy did we get a surprise! The staff were friendly, the house equipped with everything we needed and the Kuleni game park offers such a tranquil environment, pity we didn't get a chance to take walks! It is an absolute 'must do again'
