The largest species of Tortoises in Africa and a resident of the Vineyard Hotel since the early 1980’s. Our tortoises are docile yet ambitious and seem to find themselves on center stage most of the time. Whether they are walking down the aisle following a bride or sneaking some delicious hibiscus flowers at the restaurants, our Tortoises are a prominent feature of the Hotel.
