Jack Hanna cottage exteriors, Rwanda, Phto by ShamwariStunning setup

Jack Hanna’s Cottage has been recently renovated to luxury safari lodge standards and is an excellent choice for hosting a small group of family or friends who prefer exclusivity. The cottage is provided for exclusive use only, sleeping up to 4 people across two en suite bedrooms (one double and one twin), with a cozy living room with open fire, dining room. In a small but functional kitchen, delicious, home-cooked meals are prepared on the property by a private chef. For larger groups, simpler en-suite rooms are also available at the main lodge, with guests dining together in the cottage.
