An amazing lodge thats hidden away but a must see. A green paradise situated on the border of the Karoo at the foot of Rooiberg pass. 5 star accommodation and services. Game roaming 200m away in the river bed...stunning.

Thanks to Ronel and Henry we enjoyed a very special weekend at this beautiful lodge. The scenery is spectacular and the birding very entertaining. The chalets are spotless and thoughtfully appointed. The food, service and ambience were all wonderful. I highly recommend their steak, my husband ordered it twice in a row! Full, cooked breakfast will start your day off...

This is a place if you just want to break away from everything! It is quite a drive on a dirt road to get there but worth it. The rooms is spacious and you just want to kick out your shoes and forget about the world and relax. The food at the restaurant is good and breakfast is a good...

What a nice surprise to suddenly see this beautiful lodge at the end of a dust road hidden in a very nice and charming scenery in the Klein Karoo. Nice cottages, a good pool and tasty food and wines in the restaurant. Henry and Ronel are the bests hosts one can think of! It was top!
