Excellent environment. Dirt road a bit tricky but short. Bathrooms by camping spot very basic but has warm water. I was particularly impressed with the helpfulness of the staff - we were hit by a mini hurricane and had to evacuate in the middle of the night. They were superb in managing that.

The new owners really try their best to keep it running and clean. The ablution facility however is very old and dirty. Cob webs everywhere. They clean the tiles and that is all. Generally the facilities can do with a proper upgrade. The location is good and staff is friendly.

Exceptionally friendly staff and a special place as it is managed by Bread of life, a NGO with a special cause. We stayed in house that needs attention. Some lights were not working and some of the bedding was torn and all bedding was clean but not particularly on standard. However, it was a huge house shared by 6 of...

I arrived around 1:00am and was pleased to see that I was able to just drive up to my campsite. It had outlets and facilities very close near which was all that we needed. It's not luxurious or anything, after all, it's less than $3 to sleep a night. Exactly what I was looking for, with great location for all...

We booked 2 tents here for one night. We like camping, so we thoroughly enjoyed staying in these tents. The tent and en-suite bathroom is neat and well-equipped. Each tent has a deck at the front overlooking the forest and valley, making it a perfect braai spot. We enjoyed our time at the bar - it was well-stocked and the...

We enjoyed the day there, kids rode the donkey cart and we had a braai. Very friendly people and staff even the locals, you buy braaipacks and they supplied the "Pap en sous" great. Kids play ground nearby very safe even a swimming pool for those hot sunny days. Food is great and well priced. The burgers was a winner...

Unfortunately we never got the opportunity to see what our accommodation looked like. The contact number on their website as well as the booking agent sites was incorrect and due to the fact that we knew we would be a late arrival we wanted to let them know and check if it would be an issue. We struggled for hours...
