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.

03 October 2018

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.

It was a great value for money. Wildlife at your door. The sounds of the birds. Clean place with beautiful bush surroundings. The staff was friendly. Great activities. Great place to bond with family or friends.

17 September 2018

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.

06 September 2018

It was a lovely evening all round and will definitely visit again.

29 August 2018

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.
Loved it.

06 August 2018

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!

23 June 2018

Excellent! Spacious well maintained house, heated splash pool at circa 100m. Well marked hiking and cycling trails. Lots of animals.

27 May 2018

We enjoyed to stay in this very nice nicely furnished house. The house ins very well maintained. The covered outside area with the large table is great. Nice and quiet spot to relax and enjoy in the Bela -Bela area.

08 May 2018

Nice and secluded, very cozy and felt homey.
Loved that the wild life came right up to your door, so you could feed them.
