The privacy in the campsite was nice, but the photos are a bit misleading as the waterfall etc. is not located on the property. The Waterfall is further down the kloof whilst the property is surrounded by forestry. The swimming by the campsite and the solitude was very nice but be prepared to stay put once there as there was a wedding going on at the same time that we could not disrupt. The facilities around the campsite is very good and seems new.

Accommodation was very nice. We enjoyed the views, forest and river walks. The hosts are friendly and we enjoyed the cradt brewery on site. Will be back.
