Thank you for your positive comment. Yes, as we are a small lodge (12 rooms), we offer a set (four course) menu. Breakfast and dinner are included in our rates. For self-catering nature lovers we have a campsite with 3 pitches, overlooking the wide valley...More

We only came to visit the caves, but while waiting for our guide we got to see 2 Rhino very close to the farm house. The caves are impressive and very large. It is pretty exhaustive due to the low oxygen levels, but well worth...More

Five stars - for the room, the stoep (terrace) and the pool (large, too, by the way)? We wonder how many additional stars you would have given us if you had taken part in our Rhino Drive (two of the cows have babies) or the...More
