“Outstanding resort, peaceful setting, beautiful views and personalized service.”

I joined a large group of international guests from across Africa, Canada and the USA for an All-Stars archery tournament. All told there were 151 archers along with their parents, coaches and adult escorts. The GM, Mr Tharratt, was personally very active in making sure that every guest’s needs were met and questions answered.
