Excellent place to stay. Close to town and Jan goes out of his way to assist and make you feel at home. Would recommend this place anytime. Only thing missing is daily cleaning by staff as other self caterings have.

We stayed at Buyskop Lodge for 2 nights - it is a lovely quiet place & the lodges are beautiful!! There is no catering so you need to take all your food - great for a quiet time. There are animals walking around. There are lots of things to do nearby - make sure you take your own towels though

Lovely stay at Buskop. Would have liked curtains in kitchen and lounge area. Also some small packets of tea, coffee, sugar and powder milk. The sign for Buskop was not visable from north side. Otherwise a pleasant place to stay.

Wonderful little farm, enjoyed walking in the bush and trying to catch up to the giraffe to take photo's. Only thing I would change for next time is to stay in chalet 1, further away from the campers they were a bit noisy.
