    Captain's Cabin was a great experience and we thoroughly enjoyed it. Enough spay to social and great rooms. Thank you for the cleanup every morning and for the amazing view on the deck! We will definitely be back.

    Bath is not necessary and a shower would be preferable. More water wise too., A toilet roll holder is needed - easy to knock the toilet roll into the bowl which is what happened. We borrowed 4 solar lanterns - suggest these should be provided.

    Loved the seclusion of the camping site. Hannes the farm manager went beyond the call of duty to show us the farm and the game and chat about their habitats. Conveniently close to Tulbagh so great access to Spar and restaurants
