The reception lady was friendly upon arrival willing to assist in all regards. Turn around time was the shortest when we requested the replacement gas for the heater. We couldn't regret what we paid for the room, it was perfect beyond our expectations.

Our hike was tough but thanks to Sylvester, our guide for the day, we made it. He knows the mountain extremely well and made us feel comfortable and guided us so well. He constantly checked on all of us. I would recommend his services anytime

Hi, Yes, you need a passport as you will be travelling via the Border at Caledon. A passport should take around 1 -2 weeks (although they have been known to be ready in 3 days), so please plan accordingly.
