Although the road was rocky to Giant Cup Wilderness Reserve for about 5km it was worth it. You defiantly need a 4X4 luckily for us my friend lend her 's for us. Take binoculars for birds, walking trails

Our stay was most pleasant in this quaint and quiet surrounding and where our thoughts were introvertedly questioning our being! An absolutely great place to relax, rest and regain our energies. We were well received by the host and the cottage was ample and well equipped for a peaceful and restful stay within the mountains. The trials were exciting and the scenery magnifique!

Heavenly, in an ideal part of South Africa and highly recommended. Liked it immensely. The location and the most peaceful surroundings are truly fantastic. What a great fireplace, especially clean-burning and smoke-free.

We had the most amazing 4 days at the Lakeside unit - with Hiking, Mountain Biking, Fly Fishing and Trail walks/runs our days were filled with the perfect combination of relaxation and enjoying the beauty of the Southern Berg. The wildlife is amazing and birds of prey spectacular! From Cape Vultures circling whilst hiking to Eland and Crowned Cranes being spotted on out MTB ride, we were truly spoilt with phenomenal surrounds and sightings!
