Loadshedding Facilities

What is loadshedding? It refers to the temporary suspension of electricity provided by Eskom, South Africa's electricity provider, to reduce consumption and thereby the load on the national grid. To compensate, South African property owners are turning to solar power, inverters with backup batteries or in some cases generators to keep the power on, wherever feasible.

What a lovely stay we had at Kingfisher with our 2 Doggies. The venue is in immaculate condition and there is so much to look at and to do - or you can just switch off and relax! The variety of accommodation options really surprised us and so did the bar and restaurant. Excellent service and food all round.
