R1000-00 per night is too much for what this accommodation offers. Husband & I stayed in Oxwagon number 4. Window pane broken and fixed with cart board. Carpets worn out and dirty. Animal visitor during the night that torn our left overs apart. The views from the Amphitheater is however worth seeing. Perhaps just go for lunch or sundowners. The... More

Beautiful rustic place with old world charm! Peace and nature became one.... the views is stunning, nice place to relax after a long week, just to charge your "batteries" again! This place is special because my friend donate one of the ox wagons and we had the opportunity to sleep in it! The owner/manger and staff are friendly and they... More

I took my boyfriend here for a night away from the city and we had a really great time. It was a really unique experience to stay in a Voortrekker oxwagon and the owners/managers were friendly and provided a great braai for us. The atmosphere encourages you to socialise with others staying there, which we really enjoyed. One must take... More

I had the worst get away with my family! I had to keep my children indoors! We had to stay out the way for drinkers that where so loud we could not sleep. The hostess was constantly drunk! I fractured my ankle and asked for assistance and was told shame. I will never go near the place that was so... More

We spent a night at the Oxwagon Lodge and truely enjoyed the atmosphere and setting. The staff prepared a first class braai for supper, with enough meat for double the amount of guests present. The koeksisters and condensed milk coffee for dessert was a real treat. Sleeping inside the oxwagons was the highlight, one cannot imagine that people travelled for... More

We went spent one night here and it was very enjoyable. The oxwagons are really cute, I felt like a real Voortrekker :) There was a braai in the evening, but we had already booked to go to a restaurant, but I actually think the braai would of been nicer because there was such a nice atmosphere going around the...

We visited the oxwagon lodge 5 years ago and thoroughly enjoyed it. This time I made certain that the owner was aware that we were a family of 4 with 2 young kids (age 5 and7). An hour before we arrived they gave the only wagon that sleeps 4, to a couple. The hostess said to me that I must... More

Dear readers, At Oxwagon Lodge we strive to deliver very attentive service to all our guests, all of the time. Unfortunately, this lady arrived at the Lodge with problems of her own, and nothing that we did to help her was able to placate her unhappy mood. We send our best wishes to all our guests, past, present and future.... More

If you plan to stay over at the Oxwagon Lodge be prepared to pay for 4 star accommodation but to get one star facilities with pathetically maintained facilities. Shower water either too hot or ice cold. The solar heating system does not work and your oxwagon will be pitch dark with the owners not even bothered to give you alternative... More

I wanted to book something different for my husbands birthday. Something that he would never expect and that would also be an adventure for my 7 year old daughter. This definately seemed to hit the nail on the head. Everybody was so surprised and it really was something we will talk about for years. Each oxwagon is placed under a... More
