SINGLE ROOMS
A good nights rest is always welcome after a long flight. For those who want privacy there are several rooms to choose from, close to, or a little distance from the action. You can share a bathroom, have your own for a little extra or wallow in "backpacker luxury" in one of the en suite rooms. Booking is essential all seasons.

DOUBLE ROOMS
Book a double for a romantic night "a deux" with your sweatheart, or a twin for you and your travel mate. Share a bathroom for a little less or endulge in a aromatic herbal bath in the Eagles Nest en suite, for a little more. Booking is essential all seasons.

BAR AND POOL TABLE
Our "inside outside bar" is the centre of activity at night and brings people together to chat about the days events and travel plans. Try your hand at Pool, Ping Pong or a game of Darts. Satelite T.V. brings the latest in sports, movies and wildlife from around the globe. Vince, the barman, specialises in "never never cocktails" (explanation only given when drinking).

 B-B-Q AREA
The Patio next to the larger pool catches the suns rays all day long and is ideal for tanning. On Sundays we "BRAAI" or Bar-B-Que. For the Carnivors, Steaks and "Boerewors" are the order of the day. For the Veggies try out our African-style salads. The garden lights set the stage for the lads and gals to chat and drink around the fire late into the night.

SWIMMING POOLS
Nothin' like a quick dip on a hot summers day. We have two pools to choose from. The smaller is warmer and fit for wallowing, while the larger is more suited for swimming lengths and kamakazi divers. Or simply relax on the grass and listen to the trickle of the water through the rockery.

INTERNET CAFE
"Let's go surfing now, everybody's LEARNT how!!" We may be in Africa but that don't mean we still use the "bush telegraph". If you want to research your travels further, write a letter to a loved one or simply mail mom "we got the technology".

"RELAX" LOUNGE
This is where you go when you've got nothing to do, or perhaps more correctly when you don't want to do anything. Some people spend a lot of time here because a lot happens around the relax lounge. People walk past......the cat walks past. ......the guests walk past......the other cat walks past......last months dinner .........the Camel Man's socks...........

GAMES LOUNGE
Try your hand at some of the traditional african games we have. Some of the rules are a bit odd but then who hasn't heard of driving around a cardboard street in a battleship, buying plastic houses with fake money and fining your best friend for visiting you in his tophat. Then there's backgamon, chess or books to read

SELF-CATERING KITCHEN
Cook yourselves a meal. There are interesting vegetables and fruit to try that you don't find in other parts of the world. Everything you need to put on a grand spread is provided. You might want to get a few lessons from one of the other guests. In our experience many cheffs like to travel as their trade is universal.

CATERED MEALS
Let us cook for you. Feeding time for the animals is between 7 and 8 pm, so if you wish to join you are most welcome. Good conversations often start at meal times, around the dinner table. Food, wine and good company make the best recepi for a succcessful dinner party. While every meal is not a party the possibilty is there.
