The ideal destination for Celebrations, Safaris, Conferencing and Tiger Fishing. Our Annual Dad’s, Lad’s and Daughter’s Tiger Fishing Competition is held in October every year and not to be missed! The Tiger Fishing is particularly good this year and while we catch throughout the year, we have great expectations of the new season opening in August. We have had the pleasure of hosting many wonderful family and corporate celebrations and our milestone Birthday Celebrations are legendary.
