All was well. Visited this luxury place for the third time but always a wish to be joined by my family who enjoyed the place for the first time. It is our desire visit again in 2021 provided a 5 to 7 days booking can be available. It is a luxurious, safe and nice quiet place to be.

We had an absolutely wonderful weekend with our children and baby granddaughter. We loved the waterhole as there was often animals or birds to see. The house was very comfortable and well equipped. The lady who came to clean was amazing - very efficient, warm and friendly - she is a keeper.

It’s a place that offers tranquility, peace and privacy. The animals keep to themselves and do not cause any disturbance. The house is spacious and well maintained. Mary the house helper was very professional, did her work with a smile. She cleaned very well during our weekend stay.

The staff was very friendly from the main gate to the reception. The guys at the reception also explained to us about the activities that were available. I loved the fact that it was quiet, such a great place to relax and bond with friends. The sounds of the birds and the animals at night. The inyalas coming close to the chalets and feeding them. I also love the fact that there was everything available for us eg. cutlery and utensils.

Fabulous location, great value for money, easy to pay via credit card from UK to SA, easy to communicate with property, near shops and restaurants, but far away enough to have the proper bush experience.
Clean!
Quiet!
Big!
Loved it.

We booked for just one night, but we would have loved to stay longer. The house is beautiful, and the surroundings are even better. We saw lots of animals including zebras and giraffes. For us, it was the perfect start of our vacation in South-Africa!
