Giant Suite

Stylish, spacious, and tastefully decorated, our Giant Suite is named after the Giant Kingfisher, Africa’s largest kingfisher species, averaging 44 cm in length. This kingfisher sports understated plumage and is known for its distinctive call. Keep an eye out for its nests along the Villa’s surrounding riverbanks.
