We only stayed over for one night. Much to short for camping. Will stay over longer the next time. Rustic but with everything you need for a comfortable camp. Campsite private. You will need an off road caravan or trailer.

Perfect location. In the middle of the wild facing amazing Mountain Views. Away from the city beeps and rush. You could enjoy the sound of silence. The chalets are super clean and equipped with everything you need. All you need is a few pieces of wood and you are all set for a braai. The staff are extremely nice and welcoming and helpful. Morning times are the best. Wrap your self with a blanket and enjoy the sunrise while sitting at the chalet’s porch with a hot cup of coffee. Definitely going back there😊. The thing I missed is a source of warmth at night time in the winters but was solved with some extra blankets. Other than that it’s a great money value and a fascinating experience.

Our stay was amazing and perfectly isolated from the outside world. Felt like we had the whole reserve to ourselves. The jacuzzi was the cherry on top. It took an hour to figure out but once we did, it was so nice to dip in the evening, the first night we even got to view the moon rise over the mountain, never seen anything like it, and it was full moon just to make it even more beautiful

The view and scenery was spectacular. Really enjoyed the Karoo and surrounding mountains was amazing!! The hot top was a bonus and the stoep with endless views with this private cabin was special. We loved it.
