A truly natural holiday retreat
Enjoy a natural retreat, surrounded by Asian animals in a luxury shepherd’s hut and explore the reserve in your personal golf buggy.
Eat & Drink
A double bed topped by two separate bunk beds face out through the windows of your shepherd’s hut so you can watch the animals at the watering hole whilst relaxing in bed! Each Shepherd’s Hut has an ensuite shower room with Bamford products and a seating area with a log burner, wall mounted TV, mini fridge, and a nespresso machine.
Set in the garden at the heart of our Asian Experience, each shepherd’s hut has outdoor seating with a chimenea, perfect for relaxing in the evening and watching the sunset.
