A wonderful setting in a valley, below the rocks, easy access to climb to the ridge. Excellent birding, especially early morning. Only complaint is the peacocks, their noise spoils the natural experience. Excellent service, friendly and helpful hosts. We will be back!

This place was so beautiful. I would highly recommend this place. The cottage we stayed in was beautiful, we had a family of ostriches living next to us, which was great. The host was super friendly!!

Great birding, outstanding scenery. The accommodation is comfortable and well appointed. The cottages afford a high level of privacy. The stoeps have wonderful views. Walls are beautiful and safe with varying degrees of difficulty.

Great little place to stay. Only 6.5 km from the main road but feels like you’re deep in the bush. Everything very neat and clean and kitchen well/equipped. Lovely bathroom with toiletries provided. Great place to hike and birdwatch. WillDefinitely return.
