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.

We spent 3 nights at Pitlochrie cottage and had a great stay. The cottage was perfect and set in a beautiful area. The communication from Joe was great. We spent the days walking on the farm, swimming in the river, playing tennis and just relaxing on the stoep. Will definitely be back!
