Perched on the cliffs overlooking the mighty River Nile, Baobab Cottage has breath-taking views of the river and islands. The cottage is an Off-the-Grid, A-framed thatched building with a large deck with elegant free standing bath and six beds.

The space
Baobab Cottage is perched on the cliffs of the River Nile overlooking waterfalls. The Cottage comfortably sleeps 6, two in the main bedroom, 2 upstairs and 2 can sleep on the daybeds in the living room. We can also arrange tents if you are more than 6 guests.

Guest access
Guests have full access to the whole plot and can explore the farm. Collect fresh eggs for your breakfast or request fresh fish from the fishermen on the river. Relax reading a book or go for a walk to the river and try some fishing. There are plenty of lawn games available, Croquet, Kubb, Cornhole, Netball and Badminton. In the evening sit on the deck and enjoy the amazing stars.

Other things to note
Malaria is bad on the River Nile. Make sure you sleep under the mosquito nets provided. Maya the cat is the resident pest controller who is very effective but may bring you the odd present (lizards and mice)! This is a thatch house in the country-side so we do have a few creepy crawlies.
