The best place to relax and recharge while experiencing the magnificent beauty of nature all around you. The surrounding mountains really have a special effect on your soul. I just loved laying on the couch in front of the fire place when the mist came over the mountains... The

Too much to do , too little time. Most beautiful landscapes, gorges, need time to take all the breath taking scenery in. "The walks need lots of time, energy, fitness, water, sweets and a very healthy attitude to cross a stream with loose rocks.

Dear sir, my first suggestion is that you contact the resort direct for more information. I can however state that OR Tambo (Johannesburg) airport is the nearest Airport. The road is safe and good. (There are several routes you can take) In the immediate surroundings of the resort there are many things to do. The cable car to the top of the mountain, Several top class restaurants. A small zoo at the dam, "booze" cruises' etc etc.

"The chalets close to the large swimming pool towards the edge, in my mind, allow for the best views."
"All room are in in good postions. Mainly the main bedrooms are facing the beter view."
"The chalets on the edge of the gorge are the best for great views especially in the late afternoons."
"I guess any room will do, but the chalets overlooking the mountains are really nice."
"Suites 100-133 are overlooking the gorge"
