                  We loved this place and We had a very relaxing time away in the zebra cottage with our kids. The cottage is so lovely and has everything you need and so great having the pool right in front. We saw lots of giraffe which our daughter enjoyed. It was the perfect place for us, our toddler and baby. The only down side is the quality of the bath and shower water but they do provide you with water for drinking and cooking but overall we absolutely loved it. Perfect place to get away from it all. Our daughter loved the animals coming up the fence.

                  We really appreciated the away from it all feel, the generous pile of complimentary firewood,bottled borehole water and views onto the Midlands bush veld. Ample bedroom space, sensible linen and firm mattresses. Our unit had a Wonderful spacious lounge well equipped homely kitchen AND our dishes were washeddaily.

                  I loved the fire place and the spacious chalet. Maybe the lighting could improve and a television at least for the cold nights. But other than that, pretty awesome getaway...

                  The weekend away was absolutely wonderful! The surroundings and wild life surprised us every day! This is the kind of place where you just want to get lost for a few days!

                  The support and help supplied by your staff are a credit to your business. We enjoyed the stay immensely and intend going back.The only negative I have is the maps could be a little better as we were not sure where we were / were not allowed to go. This however allowed us to have drive adventures, so was not a problem at all. A bush camp for caravaners would be nice….away from everybody with just camping space for one or two vans with toilets…. The rest we can handle.Wonderful and affordable. Cheers,.
