What I loved the most was that I could sleep ON TOP of my cottage ... accessible from a ladder - all you do is tell them at dinner you wish to sleep outside and they will set-up a mattress. Didn't want to close my eyes for the incredible sky/stars. I must admit that I gave in to the bugs around 3am and climbed down to my very comfortable bed.
The accommodation is quite nice -- not luxurious but certainly very good. The food was plentiful and I found it quite nice.
Because I was there with a special photographer's tour, all the arrangements were organized with our photography in mind. We set out to the dunes and Dead Vlei at 6am ands had as much time at Dead Vlei as we wanted -- all morning. The guides were knowledgeable and quite friendly. They were very keen to make certain we got the right angles for our photos.
There is total quiet and the stars and being able to sleep under them is a huge plus for this property. I would happily go back!More
