This has been the fourth time that I am priviledged enough to celebrate my birthday at this wonderful, relaxing, peaceful, quiet venue. Sharing the wide open space with friends, dogs, my first born son, sheep, cattle & various wildlife makes this a very special place for us. Thank you for sharing your little piece of heaven with us!

This is an incredible property to escape from it all. I thoroughly enjoyed my three nights here. There is more than enough space and everything you need to have a comfortable stay. There is two BBQ (Braai) options and a lovely fireplace, a well equipped kitchen, lounge with DSTV (cable channels) 3 bedrooms and a bathroom with a large outdoor... More

This was our 2nd trip this year to Highland Giants. This time we stayed at the Bald Ibis Cottage. Very secluded and just the place to relax. Not to mention the zebra, blesbok and reedbuck that showed up on the lawn in front of the cottage. The solitude is just phenominal. The view from the cellphone tower is excellent and... More

Spacious and clean but in need of a bit of maintenance. Small things like mixer taps loose in the kitchen and our room. Cords on the roller blinds in our room were broken so the blinds never worked properly. Otherwise nice stay, lovely fire place with plenty of wood, it was very cold when we stayed. The men fished and... More

Many thanks for your review and visiting our farm. If you can let us know which cottage you were in we can look into the maintenance issues. Regarding the lack of seeing any one, we do make it clear in our literature that we will not bother anyone but are available should a guest request it. The majority of our... More

Lots of space for dogs to run and swim in the dam or they can safely stay in the fenced garden.They can then come back and sleep in front of a log fire while you have a sundowner and enjoy the beautiful view. What more could you want!

Our 5 day stay was a wonderful and relaxing break. We couldn't get enough of the view and the quiet, and our dog loved the walks. Our few attempts at fly fishing were not successful, though, not sure whether this was due to a lack of technique or perhaps the dams are not well stocked. There are many routes for... More

Dec 2013 -This was our second stop on our seven week tour of South Africa. The cottages are very spacious, clean and very comfortable; with everything a small family like ours needed. Being able to walk over the property and explore the rocky areas and watch the animals and enjoy the birds was terrific. Even the road up to the... More

Just what we needed, a few days in a very peaceful environment, doing our own thing. Stayed in the farm cottage which was wonderful; dogs thoroughly enjoyed the walks; we enjoyed being away from it all. Took a drive up the hill and great to see game that we don't normally see (where we live in the lowveld). Blesbok, springbok,... More

If you want great trout fishing in brilliant surroundings, this is it. The cottages are excellent and contain everything needed, fishing on the doorstep of each one. Zebra, Blesbok and Springbok just outside the window with Fish Eagles too. This is the place to be... Thoroughly recommended.
