What a graceful and peaceful place for a stay! Local art adorns the lodge, it is definitely he best we saw. The cultural and historical tours in the area give a specific dimension to SA reality, difficult to catch elsewhere, commending the lodge's efforts towards sustainable tourism. A walk in the bush or morning sunrise yoga in front of the lake and the Soutpansberg Mountains is wonderful. And, last but not least, Bettie and the staff treated us with the utmost hospitality, the cooking being absolutely superb.
