We had a very pleasant experience at Evergreen.
Accommodation was very nice. Simplistic, clean and had everything we needed. Loved the mirror with a electrical outlet nearby (something women who have to blow dry their hair would appreciate).
Fishing and floating on the river was lots of fun.
Stargazing at the bonfire was a lovely way to finish each day.
Our children enjoyed exploring the area with their bicycles.
Friendly and warm hosts.
Thank you we had a wonderful experience and would love to visit you again.

Fabulous. 4 out of 5

What a gorgeous place, the freshwater river is so close to the guest house along a short easy path and the swimming is fantastic with calm water surrounded by rocks and small rapids. Lynnie and Rob were great hosts, couldn't do enough for us and the house is comfortable, well-stocked and everything worked. Sitting around the fire at night looking at the stars on a clear African night was the best! Please go, it is worth the visit. The roads were not too bad even after some heavy rains.

I enjoy the serenity, and the fact that the nature is so pristine and 'untouched'.
Don't be scared to dig for the hidden jewels of the Groot Marico, they are worth investing in.
