We were doing a trip through many parts of the country (South Africa) and stayed in quite a few hotels and guest houses. The Old Trading Post was all it promised to be (in contrast to a few other establishments), and more. The setting (close to The Lakes in the Wilderness area) is absolutely beautiful, as is the tranquil garden - sitting on the deck at sundown, I saw, in about 10 minutes, more than 10 different species of birds. The accommodation is spotlessly clean, very crisp and stylish. The hosts hit exactly the right spot - warm, helpful and very discrete. We will go there again, and I will recommend The Old Trading Post to anyone who is looking for first class accommodation. Thank you!
