The lounge and bedrooms open up to a large verandah looking onto riverine forest. Fans are in the bedrooms and lounge area. The kitchens are equipped with a fridge/freezer, stove, microwave, kettle, toaster, pots and pans and all the necessary crockery and cutlery. Linen, towels (bring own beach towels), soap and toilet paper are provided. Braai facilities are available as well as a trampoline and jungle gym for children.

Abundant birdlife including the Narina Trogan, African Finfoot, Crowned Eagle, Knysna Loerie, Olive woodpecker and over 150 species of birds inhabit the riverine, wetland, grassland and coastal forest ecosystems in this area. Antelope such as nyala, impala, bushbuck and blue and grey duiker can also be seen on a scenic walking trail through the reserve.

We border the Margate Country Club for golfing enthusiasts and are 10 minutes from Margate and Uvongo beaches and 10 minutes from the Margate Airport.
