    We had an excellent Chicken Pie for lunch and the Sauvignon Blanc was the perfect accomplishment to it. Dog friendly when outside.

    Last minute we decided to visit Iona wine farm - It was well worth the 6km dirt road trip. The wines were really great. Karen took us through the tasting and was very friendly and knowledgeable. The setting is absolutely beautiful too!

    This is the very best of Cape Brandy and a must see if you like spirits of any kind. Essential if you like Brandy/Cognac or whisky! (They don’t do whisky, but this product is so good, you’ll love it)

    I've done this hike 4 times, and I think it is probably my favorite hike in the world. It starts off as an easy stroll through beautiful scenery, until you get to the top of a gorge. And then it is time to jump of cliffs into beautiful pools of water, for the next 2 hours! You jump off of waterfall after waterfall, with the highest jump 14 meters. And once you start, there is not going back.

    You must go with someone who knows the pools, because there is one after the highest 14 meter jump that looks like a great jump, but there is a big rock in it, so you must know not to jump there, there are no signs. You have to hike around that one.

    Also, there are two exits, the first exit is soon after the last jump. The other exit is following the river down for another two hours, swimming in large pools of water for long distances, getting in and out of the water in your wet shoes and clothes numerous times (make sure to start very early, cause it starts to get cold and everything you bring will be soaking wet.) Then eventually you get to a large manmade pipe, where you leave the water, hike up a large peak and finally make it back to where you started. It is a long 8 - 10 hours. But amazing!

    Don't forget to do the bum slide before the first jump.

    On going for a walk in the HH Nature reserve I was surprised at how nature had fought back after the fires and there was evidence of new shoots in trees and new seedlings popping up.

    What a lovely discovery. Extraordinary views, delicious wine, great staff and an art gallery with quirky pieces off the beaten track.

    Who would have known that such an attraction is just a stones throw away from the N2!
    I was amazed at how much is actually going on under-ground. Very eloquent and informative talk given by Liezel who was able to answer all questions that were put to her.

    This was our second time, coming back after 25 years. Facilities have improved. Flushing toilets at huts. Lapas for cooking improved. Great areas to swim at regular intervals. Carry enough water in summer. Not recommended if you're not fit or have bad knees. Be careful. The first hut door has an emergency lock that can lock you out if you don't have the key with you.

    We popped in to Peregrine as we were curious about all the bustle. A few different shops along with a restaurant and a big farm stall type shop that features pies and preserves and home made goods. Not so much of the fruit and veg type though boxes of local apples available. It’s worth a stop if you want to stock up on the usual kinds of treats and maybe find something tasty to take home.

    Great quad bike tour company. Tour guides were friendly and helpful. Trails are through the Hottentot mountains which are beautiful. The tour is beginner friendly, but the guide was also able to let the experienced have fun too. Great experience and would gladly visit again.

    Thanks Brian and Team for the most memorable Segway Experience our family has EVER had. The 360 degree view was beautiful, all set in the amazing Grabouw forest. We will definitely come again and next time we going to do that awesome 1 day trip with the Quad bikes too with the family to see more from another perspective.

    Thanks for the friendly helpful kindness, consideration and mostly the memories from everyone their.

    After having arrived well after 8 at night, we found the staff still up and about catering for an on site dinner and party. It was raining and yet the staff assisted us by walking us to our front door in the rain. The room was neat and tidy, clean, accommodating, with multiple charging points for all of our electronic equipment ... which was most helpful. They prepared a packed lunch for us as we needed to leave so early in the morning, even though we only asked them at around 8:30.
    We will go back again.

    The honey shop is nice and of course you can taste and buy honey. But it’s tiny and could have been so much more... worth a stop if you’re passing.

    Great new adventure offerings at Old Mac Daddy. Archery, zorbing and mountain biking tours. A must for everyone visiting the Elgin Valley.
