There was a time when you returned from every journey with a souvenir. A postcard, a pendant or perhaps just a stamp in your passport - something small and simple that served to summon up the memory of a time and place.
Yet there are some journeys so poignant, so brimming with delight that they become their own mementos. So much that by simply closing your eyes you can recall the color, scent and sensation of every moment. A sun-kissed breeze ruffling your hair through an open window, a flash of spotted fur ducking into the bush, the exotic aroma of a delicate Karoo Lamb trickling your senses and a smile so disarmingly honest that you can only return in kindness.
These are the truest souvenirs. Inspiring nostalgia full of fond remembrances. Occiasions where the journey itself becomes the destination. It does not matter what the itinerary is and where you are going next. You simply relish every moment of time well spent, in the company of interesting people like yourself, while getting pampered in unique and sincere hospitality
That is our destination. Beyond satisfaction, beyond expectations, beyond mere excellence — there waits an experience called delight.Email Us View The Brochure
