We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at Sunrise, what a beautifully appointed and private chalet. The views are so good for the soul and the various birds are just beautiful. A walk down to the dam is well worth the effort - very peaceful to sit there and listen to the various frogs and birdcalls. In the evenings there is a small braai just a few steps down from the chalet, a good place to sit with a glass of wine whilst watching out for satellites and shooting stars. Our hosts were excellent and booking using Afristay was effortless with immediate confirmation.

My goodness! What a heavenly place! We booked Eagles Nest and it was everything as advertised and more. Gréât cycling and game driving. The view is just incredible from our beds. The house felt just like home - cosy, inviting, easy to live in. The night skies were magical. Sunrise and sunsets breath taking. Wonderful friendly staff. Thank you!!
