We have never travelled at peak season so was caught red handed when even the camp sites were full, we always have a back up when other accomadation is full or to expensive.
We had two days to hang around and wait for our sons to join us, we could not find any accomadation or camping in and around Sedgefield so we decided to drive Inland into mountains,, we happened upon the Teniqua tree tops and we're happy to hear that there was a cancellation so we could hire the Tented accomadation for two nights.
Robyn, showed us around, it was basic but absolutely sufficient and said we would take it for the two night,
TILL we were told the price of R2000 night, for the two of us R2500 if more
We were gobsmacked that they could get away with such exhorbatNt prices.
People are obviously paying
so we took it for one night, , as as we were desperate
As the previous guy said, it nice enough but not tree top tents, they are tent'/ with added decking and rooms
very cleverly using recycled items, which we in support of.
We could not find our condiments and the cabin had nothing in the way of a little salt etc.
However, Robyn did give us some coffee and tea to tide us over.
The cabin kitchen cutlery was not well equipped all knives blunt
no where to hang wet towel or hand washing
beds were comfortable enough but I could get that in a little self catering elsewhere..
We aren't saying don't go, but just know that you are paying a premium for the accomadation...that is not upmarket
we were offered a three bedroom serviced 3 star rated unit for 2700, with all modern cons in a leafy area, plus pool and gym, tennis etc the next night
one small note to the owners (the flap on the floor of tent between tent and lounge is dangerous, I tripped numerous times when passing)
