Lounge on your verandah in a grassy acacia grove, watch locals fish for their evening meal,  butterflies alighting, children swimming and boats passing up and down the river.

Our rooms aspire to tastefully combine local tradition while providing the guests the

comforts of home. Each room has a modern bathroom outfitted with solar hot water.

Go to your nightly rest soothed by the evening breeze and the night sounds of the river.
