The last 400m of entrance road to the cottage is fairly rough and a pickup or SUV is recommended, however some guests have used normal vehicles, driven slowly without a problem. Alternatively you can leave your vehicle at the start of this section - safe parking is available here. On arrival and departure we will help ferry you and your luggage to and from the chalet.
Mobile reception at the cottage is limited but there are areas nearby where the reception is better. There is no internet connection at the chalet. Free Wi-Fi is available at a number of restaurants in Wilderness village. In case of an emergency we have Wi-Fi facilities at our house.
Meals at extra cost can be arranged with us. Pets welcome by arrangement.
The chalet is 15 minutes from Wilderness village with its numerous restaurants (some highly rated), variety of shops, liquor store, petrol station, bicycle and scooter hire, pharmacy and Friday night market with live music.
It is also 20 minutes from the Wilderness beaches and lagoons. The village is located between two picturesque rivers, one of which flows into a beautiful vlei (lake) with associated wetlands. These environments are wonderful for birding. Canoes can be hired to explore these waterways.
