The garden is beautiful and the rates are OK. Breakfast is served between 7 and 9 (a little longer would have been nice for us). The selection of food... More

The rooms are nicely equipped - there is even a radiator and heating blankets for chilly nights. Owner and staff are very... More

The lodge comprises beautiful old buildings in good condition. The welcoming sherry was a nice touch. I particularly liked the walk up the granite dome behind the lodge, which provides a lovely view of Springbok. The owner and manager were pleasant and helpful.
