Ive been calling to book this place for more than 2 weeks wanted to host a party for my cousin and accomodate 25 people a guy name Sipho promised to come back to me everytime i called him but he never did. How can you keep on calling people who dont want your money. Its not as if we are going to sleep there for free. They are not professional.

They cancelled our booking 3 days before we were due to arrive. Wouldn't even bother making a booking here.

Sehr schwierige An- und Abfahrt, da keine ordentliche Strae vorhanden ist. Die Unterkunft war schn und die Anlage gepflegt und gro. Leider gab es ausser uns nur eine weiter Familie die zu Gast war. Bei einer so groen Anlage sehr seltsam. Das Essen und der Wein waren nicht gut und berteuert - besser ist es man bringt sein Fleisch und Getrnke mit, dann kann man die tollen Grillpltze nutzen.

The scienery the birds the friendly staffIts just very relaxing there

review by Landi Maree

"Lacks personal touches"

Room was clean and fine for just sleeping over but lacks personal touches. No mirror or plug in room. No chair to sit on in room, basically just a bed and a cupboard. The kitchen and lounge is an open area, but the lounge contains two single beds and a TV against the wall, no chair to sit on to watch TV. Although self catering, I would not recommend it if you wish to make your own food, no microwave, only a small bar fridge, two pots only, no pans or utensils.

review by Sunel Lindeque, South Africa


I had a lovely stay at the lodge for one night, would have love to stay longer. The staff were very friendly and the room was fresh and clean.Would recommend it to my friends anytime.
