Recommended break-away in the country house with butlers to complete the adventure experience. Inviting pool and all the amenities and body massages you could dream of. Just taking a run allows one to appreciate the envonment even more.

An excellent facility except for the very noisy N1 highway less than 1 km from the caravan park. This is especially on Friday and Sunday evenings from traffic to and from Polokwane.

With so much for the kids to do in a safe environment, this is the most relaxing holiday ever. Staff are all friendly and helpful and entertainment at main pools is fantastic. The cycle tracks are awesome for kids starting out and adults who need a challenge.

Enthusiastic wel trained staff, how ever facilities and buildings is in need of a facelift, it reminds ons of resorts of the early sixties. Makhado no.1 is poorly decorated and furnished, considering the fees charged. Cutlery and crockery is of the appropriate standard.

The "Butler" has no idea how to manage. And you do not lie to tour guests and underestimate their intelligence. Other than that the accommodation was acceptable and rooms were clean. Rooms are rather small.

The additional facilities example swimming pools tennis court, and cycle tracks are a pleasure. The rooms have an great view if the bush. The holiday will be perfect with a boma that would provide privacy and an outside area.
