Our gorgeous, private, Willow Tree Bush Retreat is an entirely organic, thatched boudoir. Set on a raised wooden deck under a huge Willow Tree and cocooned in dense reeds, the Willow Tree is on the banks of a quiet stretch of the fast flowing Crocodile River. Indoors a sunken Jacuzzi spa bath, surround sound stereo and decadently romantic furnishings complete with Persian carpets, silk cushions and a mosquito net, set the scene. Outdoors, a large, double hammock, fire brazier and beautifully set dining area (weather permitting) complete the picture. You will be welcomed with bubbly, and delicious hors d’ouvres set up next to the river.

 

 

 

 

The River Cottage is an absolutely private gem on a beautiful wild stretch of the Crocodile River. This gorgeously furnished, two roomed stone cottage has a surround sound and outdoor stereo and a cosy lounge with a fireplace. Upstairs is a loft bedroom with a skylight for you to enjoy the night sky or a downstairs, a four-poster bedroom with mosquito net and Persians, overlooking the rapids. On your private river bank, a double hammock strung over the river invites you to laze away the day whilst gently rocking over the river. You will arrive to chilled sparkling wine and delicious hors d’ouvres, so that you can climb into the bubbling Jacuzzi on a wide furnished outdoor deck overlooking the river.
