I had the privilege to spend my birthday weekend with my family at this secluded spot. Beautiful natural surrounding, you could swear you were smack bang in the middle of nowhere. We also saw a couple of "klipspringers" closeby as we were braaing on the veld pit fire in front of the cottage. The cottage had no electricity but ample... More

What a perfect little treasure. I booked this accomodation initially due to the days 'kloofing' that we did here, which was fantastic and highly recommended. We opted to stay in one of the cottages but on a DB&B basis with Jurgen and Maraletta cooking all of our very delicious meals. The farm has no electricity and all of the water... More
