Its an absolute amazing breakaway surrounded by nature, tranquility, serene with the bright stars and clear skies gazing down upon you. Enjoyment in style with state of the art glam camping and beautiful walking and biking trails. Relaxation in your own hot tub with braai facilities and cosy indoor wooden kaggel completes your stay. Looking forward to my next visit.
Superb. 5 out of 5
