During your stay you will be free to explore the great plains whenever and however you so please via foot, jeep, or horseback accompanied by expert guides and rangers. Between game excursions to your own private landscape head down to the glorious pool hidden in tropical jungle plants to cool off and relax or if you fancy a more energetic activity, head to the tennis or squash court or use the gym facilities. The Moroccan inspired spa is also available to ensure you can escape to a serene and tranquil environment and end the day with a relaxing massage or spa treatment.
