Review by Gugu Cebekhulu (Gauteng)

The establishment is so fantastic, clean and well maintained. We really enjoyed our stay. The staff was very friendly and the Sunday Buffet lunch was so divine!

We will definitely be coming back for a longer stay!!!

Review by Clara Hurrie (Johannesburg)

My family thoroughly enjoyed our 3 nights stay together.

We did a 4pm game drive to see the cats up close & personal. That was most spectacular and I would highly recommend it.

Your luxury units are very tastefully furnished & very comfortable. Your rates are very reasonable for a family of 4.

The property is kept very neat clean & tidy. It is very picturesque - lots of indigenous aloes and plants as well as the waterways

Reception is always friendly and ready to help.

I think your venue has strong potential what with the on site restaurant, events hall & store. All need some work as the decor and furnishings should be as tasteful as your accommodation. The store seemed under stocked.

The farmyard is lovely as well as the play area for the kids

It really is a lovely place to stay en route to/from Mpumalanga or for a day visit if you are a local.

I would highly recommend your accommodation & game drives to others but the reception areas need some work.

I would definitely consider coming to stay there again in the future

Many Thanks & Regards

Ons het net jul plek vinnig besigtig en dit is baie mooi en netjies.
Ek en my vrou is altwee bietjie gestrem en moet trappe vermy.
Huis of rondawel nom4 lyk of hy bie gemaklikste kan wees.
Ons sal in die toekoms julle defnitief nader vir n naweek wegbreek. Sal ook ander mense van julle vertel.

Spent 2 days in november 2014. We found it most interesting and lovely accomodation. Game drive was a treat not to miss. Going back on 28 Dec for another stop before going to White River.
Thanks to Wayne and staff.
