We spent three nights at Duckbay Lodge. We were upgraded from Fisherman's Cottage. This was very generous move by management and resulted in us getting high value for the price we paid. Duckbay Lodge is highly recommended. Clean, with quality furnishings made us feel "at home." Spacious and well equipped. We had rainy weather most of our stay, and did no fly-fishing. Our walks in the gaps in the weather, were greatly enjoyed, the mountains and the changing colours were spectacular! The abundance of firewood afforded the opportunity to dry out in comfort after rain drenching. The variety of bird life we could observe from Duckbay was another added surprise. The loaf of freshly baked bread and trout pate appreciated. Thanks to Natasha and team for a memorable stay. Goschen is well named after Joshua's mountain and valley portion of the Promised Land. It is a unique and beautiful place.

We loved every minute of our stay at Giants Cup Wilderness Reserve. Tash upgraded us to stay at Duckbay Lodge, which is on the edge of the lake. Birdspotting was incredible, the walks were great, views unbeatable. Trout pate with yummy homebred bread was a treat. Wish we could've stayed longer.
