Extremely nice environment, close to nature. Very nice small attentions, with some pieces of lavender here and there. Everything seems intended to make the stay pleasant. The first image from the window was children playing with rabbits, 5 meters away from the window room! So good memories!

Fine for a one night stay. After that not much to do except visit the town, Cango Caves and Cango Wildlife. Make sure you get the 4 star rooms. Very confusing when you get there as there are 3 and 4 star units. Disappointed cause were told that the staff were not going to clean on New Years Day. Breakfast...

We loved the serenity of this place. It was like a piece of heaven tucked away between the mountains. Locations was conveniently between Cango caves and Oudsthoorn - great for sightseers like us. The tent accommodation was a nice change from normal rooms - was spacious with a large bathroom and a great shower. The bubbling creek just below our...

What a pleasure it was to stay here for 2 nights. It is the perfect setting for a relaxing getaway, the close proximity to all there is to do in Oudtshoorn is an added bonus. It is private enough but not isolated and you are surrounded by beautiful nature from all sides. A great stopover if you want to do...
