The Five Assegais Fishing Lodge is a very cute old stone home from the turn of the century, nestled in a protective valley overlooking large dams., the lodge offers an intimate country house atmosphere, which is ...More exclusive and private. The open plan sitting, dinning and kitchen area is perfect for both catered, we provide hearty country fare, and self-catering guests. The kitchen is fully equipped and the there is the full bouquet of DSTV. The house has 3 double bedrooms en-suite and a fourth bedroom also en-suite with two single beds sleeping 8 altogether. All beds are equipped with electric blankets and fab linen and loads of soft cushions to ensure a duvet wilderness experience. The lodge is the epitome of 4 star comfy, shabby chic luxuries where one can set aside the troubles of the world. Less
