    I don't remember having a fridge in the room as all the lodges are close to the main bar and restaurant so easy to get things cold. However I am sure the staff at CP would be very accommodating to support anything you need.

    We offer a comprehensive range of alcoholic drinks, including both spirits and a well-chosen range of South African wines. From January 2017, drinks will be included in the rate so a price-list will be superfluous.
