We had 3 wonderful nights at Bo Kouga Mountain Retreat. Despite really bad winds and chilly air, the Kasper's went out of their way to ensure our stay was first class. We spent some time in the woods with the game, did the walk to the waterfall (highly recommended!! - especially when all 4 Jack Russel's join you), a trip... More

Very nice, clean and cozy accommodation. Really enjoyed our overnight stay. Ideal Farm atmosphere for relaxing. Never had time to walk through the Nature Reserve but it looks very good. Fully equipped 1 bedroom cottage with everything needed to ensure an enjoyable stayover. No TV and No Cellphone reception, what a pleasure!!!

Just take my word for it!!! Absolutely stunning!! The chalet, the situation and the cleanliness. The peace and quiet.....We got everything we wanted and it was a pity to leave. There is a beautiful walk to the waterfall. Lots of Proteas and bird life and keep your eyes open for springbok and zebras.

We stayed in a very spacious cottage with a fully equipped kitchen and 2 bedrooms. From our stoep where we had breakfast we had a fantastic view over the farm and the valley. The fire place was cozy and very comfortable for the colder winter nights. The farm has a unique atmosphere and it is a wonderful place to spend... More

Beverley and Berndt are the perfect hosts and offer fabulous cottages with great attention to detail.it was simply marvellous being out of range of cell phones and Tvs. We spent hours on long walks through the game camp and up to the waterfall and were thrilled with the...

If you want some quiet and relaxing time, that's the perfect place. The cottage was great, the personal touch was everywhere incl. fresh flowers. The cottages and the farm are very well looked after. We felt very welcome with our dog. We had nice walks at and around the farm. We where there in May, so it was to cold... More

The warm welcome from Beverly and Berndt, the fully equipped cottage (Eland), eye for detail (dog biscuits, chocolate in the bedroom, fresh flowers), the silence, the stars, the beautiful environment, the walks you can do to the waterfall, swimming in the dam, hiking and the game you can view from nearby. It was heaven for us! We needed a break... More

My husband and I simply couldn't face another stressed out and busy summer holiday, among hordes of people, seemingly enjoying the hustle and bustle at the SA coast. Early September we searched for an ideal hide-away where there's hardly (if any) cellphone reception, where there's fresh air, beautiful scenery, and very few other people. I'm happy to say that we... More

If you are looking to escape the city for some quiet time, this is the place for you. While the setting is rustic, the facility is still first class with all the mod cons for those who wish to get away, but don't wish to "go camping" and have to rough it. The Gemsbok cottage is a lovely 2 bedroom... More
