Beautiful home, wonderful facilities for a lovely quite weekend away from the madding crowd. Some beautiful rock paitings in the Reserve - well worth a visit. Be aware that it is not self-drive Game Reserve

Great place to get close to the rhinos. The lodges are self catering and in good condition. You can take nice walks around as well.
