This was a lovely spot to stay if you have to travel via Springbok (it's really quite close in African terms). We were lucky to be able to book the Mountain huts which are beautifully laid out with massive stone protuberances as your bedside tables and a beautiful bathroom. The views are spectacular from their situation and it's lovely to spend time on the stoop pre dinner, there was a well stocked fridge in the hut. We also had visitors, apart from our resident geckos they supply a net for those who don't wish to share a room with them, and one night we had a mouse but unlike the British variety, he looked more like a sweet little gerbil and was pretty desperate to vacate our space. One of our party was Coeliac and the kitchen even made her special bread, in fact every single meal she was especially catered for, this was impressive and much appreciated, the food was very, very good. It's relatively easy to do a day trip to the coast from here. We barely used the main lodge and really wouldn't have wanted to have a room here it was definitely too formal for our taste. I'd love to return and see the famous flowers and would have no hesitation in staying here again.
