We booked one night in a safari tent. The accomodation was ok, but not as nice as in Buffelsdrift. I visited that one 3 years ago. This accomodation is much cheaper, but you donot get the right tent feeling. Inside there is too much furniture...More

Had a lovely stay at the hotel which was very enjoyable but wish we had eaten elsewhere. The restaurants food was very unimpressive and overpriced. Had the pea soup starter, which was definitely previously frozen with a chalky texture. The Ostrich burger main was undercooked...More

De Oude Meul Old Mill Restaurant is no ordinary restaurant. It is a historic building with the Old Watermill still inside the restaurant. Approx. 150 years old. The restaurant opened its doors in Oct. 2003 and is still going strong! The restaurant is known for the wide variety of venison dishes served in the restaurant. People come from wide and far to experience it! We are also known for the wildlife scenery and river in front of the restaurant that creates a peaceful yet romantic atmosphere! We are situated at the foothills of the Swartberg mountains and are also surrounded by mountains. Truly the little paradise in the Klein Karoo!
