Great birding, outstanding scenery. The accommodation is comfortable and well appointed. The cottages afford a high level of privacy. The stoeps have wonderful views. Walls are beautiful and safe with varying degrees of difficulty.

Great little place to stay. Only 6.5 km from the main road but feels like you’re deep in the bush. Everything very neat and clean and kitchen well/equipped. Lovely bathroom with toiletries provided. Great place to hike and birdwatch. WillDefinitely return.
