A new addition is Koro Lodge - a converted farmhouse in the reserve offering fabulous, flexible accommodation options for up to 8 - perfect if you have families in your wedding party (children over 10 are welcomed).

The wedding couple can luxuriate in the privacy of the Riverside Supreme Suite with private sitting room, spa bath for two, spectacular outdoor shower and exclusive infinity pool.
