What a beautiful spot to get away from the hustle of city life. The two bedroom cottages are well kitted out for a very comfortable stay.
The wide open spaces were truly breathtaking and whether chilling by the pool, with Midred the goat to amuse us, or walking up to three and a half hours across the hills and through the kloof, or taking a game drive, this is a must visit destination.
The owners and staff were so welcoming and helpful throughout our stay. The braais at the lodge boma were a great opportunity to chat to the staff about the history and the fossils, rock paintings and game that can be seen around the lodge area.
As well as the Eland, Ostrich and Helmeted Guneafowls that roam around the cottages, we saw Cape Rhebok, Kudu, Gemsbok, Black Wildebeest and Angulated Tortoise on our walks and game drives.
It was our first visit, but it will certainly not be our last.
