The living area is perfect: whether you’re dining under the hippo skeleton chandelier or relaxing in front of the fire, this open space is perfect for entertaining and relaxing. The mezzanine level above is ideal for children who want to watch a movie before bed or for when you’re catching up on news.
The sophisticated library is nestled under the dome of the Observatory. It has two levels separated by a staircase. You’re welcome to enjoy any of the books during your stay. This space is also an office, with an open fireplace for relaxing with a drink.
The nursery has a triple bunk bed and bedroom for a nanny or, if you need more space, extra guests. It is completely self-contained – with a separate bathroom and kitchenette.
A flight of stairs will take you to the sun deck. With its comfortable sofas, it is a wonderful place to enjoy a drink. On cooler evenings, you can relax in the jacuzzi and take in the panoramic views of the Palala Valley.
The Observatory is serviced by a butler, maid and private chef who will customise a menu based on your preferences. Meals are enjoyed inside, outside or at one of several beautiful locations in the bush. You are also welcome to give the chef the night off and cook your own traditional South African braai if you like.
For larger groups there are over spill chalets.
