Each room leads out onto the tranquil gardens where zebra and wildebeest wander by.

A blend of Victorian and African decor compliments the beauty and majesty of 900 year old Jackelberry trees, whose shade cascades over the pristine lawn areas. Full English breakfasts are served daily, and delicious country cuisine is available on request for lunch and dinner.

Our stay was horrible!! Unbelievable! The manager, her name is Portia, was EXTREMELY unwelcoming and LIED saying that we cleaned out the mini bar and sent a R650 bill for us! When in fact, she cleared the mini bar just to spite us for not staying there after the unpleasant treatment towards us. Never again. If you're a black person, don't even bother booking yourself in here. I hope Portia gets reprimanded for her lies.

Nice place, friendly staff, adequate but very small rooms, only a little bigger than the bed. Food ok, no surprises here. Major power failure while we were there. Staff managed to deal with it rather well.

review by Ed D


Place is nice. A little remote if you want to do the panoramic route. But if you want a quiet place not far from stuff its good.

review by Michael Nerenburg, American Samoa


I strongly recommend. It's like being at home. Staff are very friendly and hospitable. I hope to return one day.
