One thousand eight hundred miles from this great river's source in Germany, the Danube Delta is one of Europe's last great birdlife refuges and a fisherman's paradise. Though damaged by misguided communist era water diversions, the Delta is being restored to its original self. Traditional village life still thrives as does the commercial fishing of sturgeon for its vaunted caviar.
The Enisala Safari Village Inn, though remotely sited in a quaint village overlooking the vast Delta, offers a rugged hilly backdrop against the expansive marshlands and canals of the Delta. The 4WD enthusiast, boatsman and fishermen will find this to be the ideal small inn as a base. The Heracleea Byzantine-era fortress looms over the village - once a strategic entry point to the famed Silk Road. Histria is nearby with seven millenia of civilizations layered onto one site - as are other ancient sites.
Enisala Safari Village is easily accessible by main road from Constanta port city about one hour away - and about 300 km from Bucharest linked by a four-lane highway to Constanta.
SERVICE & ORDER
Because the Inn is small service is informal and well managed. Tours in 4WD or boats are arranged by the Inn managers.
The circular thatched Inn, decorated both in modern and traditional style of brilliant almost Bermuda-like blues and whites, is a comfortable refuge for the outdoorsman. Rooms are comfortable with uniquely detailed bathrooms.
Fresh fish, as one might guess, is the specialty cooked over wood fires.
In Bucharest, one of the owners also runs the popular Atheneu Bistro near the Athenée Palace (Hilton), an affordable and popular eating place for locals and expats, and the newer La Taifas.
