Zwakala is a very special spot, it was out 3rd visit but our first staying in Legodi and Cob Cottages. They were comfortable and full of unique features and character, in such lovely locations in the forest and by the river. We enjoyed a delicious and festive lunch at the brewery which is an absolute MUST, and we swam in the river, jumped off the river swing, tubed, walked, braaiied and relaxed. Rob and Denise are such friendly and hospitable hosts, we will definitely be back!

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.

Very nice weekend away. It is a family run farm and the hosts are lovely people. You can also visit their restaurant and craft brewery on the site. Accommodation is a rustic farm stay in a really peaceful setting. Go! You will love it!
