Tranquil, absorbing, beautiful venue. Clean tidy and personal. Great getaway.
Bruce Gates Sep 2009
On arrival we were shown to our own guest cottage on a hill with fabulous views. Just like Out of Africa! Everything was very clean and smart (five start quality). A truly memorable place to stay.

Follow the signs from Oudtshoorn to Highgate Ostrich Farm. We are just after Highgate on the left. Look for the green signboard to De Denne.
