We really enjoy our weekend camping, the facilities for the bush camp are great and all you need. The pool is well kept and a relaxing place to cool down from the heat. At the time we went the trees had no foliage which we think is due to the of lack of rain but once the rains come and... More

This is place is simply marvelous. Unfortunately we stayed there only 1 night but we loved it. If you go there you don't just book a room, you book to be on a farm with ostriches, giraffes and some lovely dogs of the owner, Sandra. In fact Sandra is a beautiful helpful woman... I would go back just to see... More

Easy to reach and find acomodation just of the road and only short part offroad inside the lodge. Nice swimmingpool and good equipped Lapa. Rooms are good and relative cool. Best part is watching the animals during feeding time....unique.

Wonderfully comfortable accommodation with everything you could possibly need to relax and unwind. Warm and friendly hosts, peace and quiet with the added bonus of giraffes, zebras and other non predatory game to watch whilst enjoying the sun set. Perfect ! Have already booked to go back again.

Dear Arthur, thank you for your kind review! Sincere apologies about the WIFI, as it should have worked in your room. It could have been that the signal was a bit weak at the time, which is unfortunately out of our control. We will certainly follow up and rectify if there is a problem. We hope to see you again...

We had a warm welcome. Sandra is a very nice person. The location is in the Waterberg mountains, a one hour drive to Marakele national park. The houses are big. Near the park are zebra's, giraffes and other animals.

We only stayed one night but we wished we'd booked for longer. Sandra the co-owner was friendly and eager to help and make our stay as enjoyable as possible. This is a very well maintained, relaxing place to chill, enjoy a Braii and watch the wildlife. Would definitely plan to go back Nicky and David Coope
