"Fantastic owner run establishment"

(South Africa) Mahomed | 29 August 2018

"We thoroughly enjoyed our stay. The river is the main feature with secluded picnic spots. The trails are nice and the facilities are well maintained. Cleo the cat was a charmer too."

Having a real pet friendly unit with a fence was wonderful, Saarkie and Lienkie had a wonderful time."
