        Unfortunately we only stayed here one night and I would have been happy to stay longer. Roger and Leonie were very helpful and accommodating. We stayed in the family suite which met our requirements. The lodge is in easy walking distance to the beach.

        The road is in a fair condition. You can go with normal car roadworks are taking place on the last few kms. Just watchout for potholes.
