Friendly service and clean enough.

This reserve was a wonderful destination in our So. African adventure. The room was very comfortable and the fireplace a welcome addition. We really enjoyed the covered patio where we could enjoy our morning coffee while taking in the incredible views and multitude of birds! The hiking was great. This place is a remarkable value. A real gem!

Very nice "Rondeel" with wonderful view over the valley. We liked the fireplace. The restaurant was okay especially the curry lamb. Good service. You can make long and beautiful walks from the lodge.
