We have just spent a night at Takadu, which we liked a lot. Rooms are spacious, beds comfortable, heating in winter and air-con in summer available. Lovely roiboos amenities, tea-making facility, wlan not in all rooms and not for free. The main building has a small, pretty pool and some sun-loungers. Food is good and included in the rate.

We had a very pleasant stay with out son of 6 months old. A baby sitter was organized so we could enjoy the safaris. The tents are perfect and the food is lovely. We enjoyed our stay and we can recommend everybody to go.
