    The cabins at the edge of the plateau are bueatifully located. The bed is very good and the bathroom as well. Breakfast, lunch and dinner at the restaurant are good. The service is good as well. We loved the nature drive to the rhinos.More

    If you visit nature, nature might return the favour ;-) However, it is rather unlikely that Rock Dassies would enter the room, as they are very cautious. If you experienced baboons coming close to the chalets, please notify the lodge manager immediately. There are accommodation...More
