We stayed in Schaapkraal (one of the luxury safari tents) and found it to be an interesting experience - camping in style. The tent was clean and equipped with everything we needed. The decor is a bit odd (there was net curtains in front of the tent windows?), but other than that, the set up was great. The outdoor shower is a great experience and there are several great hiking options on the property.

Dear Ilze. Thank you for the feedback and we are happy you enjoyed your stay in the glamping unit. Our guests just love the outdoor shower! We do find your comment about the decor a bit odd, specifically the curtains (not NET but VOILE) as we have always been complimented on this. Trust to welcome you back soon!

We stayed 2 nights in the Lux. Cabins - amazing spot ! Near to the swimming lake with all you need for a relaxed stay. Very friendly staff - self-catering but some km the road you will find a well stocked restaurant.

We stayed for 2 nights in the Witkruis bedouin cabin over new years eve and had a great time!! The drive from Clanwillam through the pass is stunning! We were pleasantly surprised with the cabin and all its amenities considering the price. So quiet and tranquil. We visited the Sevilla Rock Art Trail situated just 8km away and highly enjoyed it. It was very hot and really enjoyed a dip in the pool upon our return. The only improvement we can think of would be the shower: poor pressure from the shower head and it was difficult to find (and keep) the right water tempature. Everything else was perfect and we would happily return!

Really glad you enjoyed your stay. No being on a municipal high pressure water network has some challenges, one being water pressure. We will try and tweak the system again and offer you a super shower next time you are back here. Thank you!

The luxury house tent, Kuru, is a dream come true. The house tent was exceptionally clean, well equipped and has a air conditioner. The location is completely private, hidden in the boulders. There is no cell reception, and the wifi was poor, but one can relax and enjoy a nice swim in the dam, just a short walk away. Truly amazing!!!!

Tent Camping and hiking is great at the Pakhuys. Surrounded by the most spectacular rock formations and a short walk to a beautiful waterfall all makes for an unforgettable breakaway from city life. Just came back from my second visit there and I'm impressed by the strong and wide spread Wifi availability throughout the whole camp site! Going back there asap.
