An amazing place with great staff. The bush house is idyllic. The rustic but charming house is beautifully designed and just a stones throw away from Cape Town. Plus, the San educational component is very important. The boma has views for days!

Learn about the history and traditions of South Africa's First people. We can learn so much from their connection to nature and sustainable living lifestyle and storytelling culture. Loved the super friendly staff!

Accommodation in tented camp. Beds were basic, mattresses very thin, duvets very thin. Extra blankets would have helped. Lapa area for braai, quaint ablutions with outside shower.
