Cosy cabin in lovely grounds with antelope and monkeys. Despite wifi advertised there wasn't any because the owners were in the process of looking for new suppliers - think they should have done that before leaving their existing supplier!

Dear Anonymous, Sorry for the very late response. Thank you for the great review with regards to your stay with us. So sorry about the wifi, but the old wifi system so outdated and we are in the process of upgrading. With your next visit I am sure that this problem would be sorted and you will then enjoy the wifi. Have a great day! Regards Emde Clarke
