From the moment I arrived I was welcomed and greeted daily with the warmest of smiles and attitudes from all present. Miranda, the lady of the house; Monica the chief cook and bottle washer!!! Fadzi, her assistant; Daniel, the general worker; and the two family teenagers Mischa --- training to become an Olympics swimmer!!! --- and Armandt --- training to become an Olympics Hip-Hop Swinger!!! Francois, the man of the house meantime was guiding tourists around the wonders of Africa as head of their Footprints Tour enterprise. I was welcomed as well at the family table for meals and nothing could be too much trouble. Thank you the van Rooyen family! they are all part of a developing five star Backpacker home from home.
