This Bush Camp was a perfect overnight stay for our family on route from Cape Town to Johannesburg. I short hike to the dam wall was just perfect to stretch our legs and the pool perfect to cool down in. The plenty tortoises provided fun entertainment and doing our own braai enjoyed by all.

Staff very friendly and extremely helpful. The breakfast was ok, maybe a bit on the expensive side. The unit was well equipped and comfortable. The location is stunning and I would highly recommend the place.
