After a bumpy start related to lost bookings and difficulty contacting the owner after arrival, Karen sorted everything out and deserves a full 5 star rating.
This is an absolutely amazing house with very well equipped rooms. There is a great garden to sit in and enjoy a drink as well as a spacious deck from which you can look out over the African landscape. It is close to the Sterkfontein caves and the cradle of humankind. From here you can also do a day trip to the Pilanesburg (Sun City) for some great game drives. If you choose to sit back and relax at the B&B, you can do that also.
The breakfast served was the best from any B&B we have experienced in South Africa. Karen's cooking is up there with some of the best of chefs. Bankenveld is also located close to good dining options for dinner - ask Karen about Tony's grill and spaghetti house which is great.
If you like dogs, then you'll love the 3 resident Dauschunds will make your stay. They aren't noisy or intrusive, just awesome.
