The track to the Venda Village is a 4x4 1st gear journey high into the Spoutensberg mountains. If this concerns you they will happily pick you up from the bottom where there is secure parking. The ride is breathtaking and arrival is non the less spectacular. A Venda village has been recreated on the foundations of an earlier settlement. The little Rondevals with their thatched rooves nestle side by side in a traditional manner although the mod cons are luxury beyond the dreams of its original inhabitants. The private suites are sumptious but all has been done with a strictly careful eye on the environment and green credentials, The staff were so friendly and accommodating we felt at home at once. Lukas cooks up a storm with a good eye for modern cooking. John and Gill with their family Peter, Cath and the girls were friends in an instant.... Peter and the girls introduced me to their extended family.... the nooiterdachter horses that run in the valley. We had a stunning ride out one evening, highly reccommended! Walking freely in the valley we were able to get very close to the game and the botany and birdlife astounded us.... relaxing on the verandah in your own plunge pool or strolling to the natural bathing spot in the fresh water springs there is no need for a chlorine dip in a blue pond... its much much more than that. A lost world indeed, one might have expected to see a jurassic park inhabitant stroll casually across. I cannot reccommend this highly enough from every aspect
