      We had a wonderful stay and enjoyed the peace and wild life. It was perfect, thank you very much

      The cottage was perfectly simple, clean and spacious with a touch of creativity where it mattered. It was equipped well with the basic necessities and we really enjoyed firing up the donkey! With the Eland and one Zebra grazing about and the birds singing away, we felt so relaxed as we enjoyed our time out. We took a nice walk to the horses and ended up kayaking down the river. Highly recommended and would love to go back again.

      This cottage is equipped with the basics required for an overnight stay. Gas 2 plate cooker, gas fridge with freezer compartment. Wood fired donkey to warm up the water. Braai area outside. Paraffin lamps for lighting in the evening.

      Enjoyed the country stay. Very neat and well provided. Cecelia is a great host.

      Not having cell reception and electricity ended up being a blessing, with a forced cut-off from the outside world.The "donkey" worked really well and heats the water better than any geyser after 15 minutes!An excellent getaway from city life!
