Situated in the wildlife- rich Eastern corner of the Conservancy is the Craig family home, Wilderness Trails, where guests have been entertained in luxury for the past 30 years. It sleeps 16 people housed in 8 beautifully decorated cottages, featuring fireplaces and verandas, and is the home of Will and Emma Craig.
Guests can relax by the fire in Will and Emma's cosy sitting room and share meals around a long banquet table in the open-air dining room. Natural springs, home-raised livestock, and a 5-acre organic garden are transformed by skilled chefs into healthy and delicious food. The salt-water pool is refreshing, the stables are full of horses for guests to ride, and the clay tennis court comes equipped with both raquets and balls.
