Hosts Lance and Kerrigan have gone to a lot of trouble to make their guest cottages comfortable and authentically "Karoo", and we really enjoyed quirky touches such as the rusting Willys Overland wagon just outside the garden of Cottage No 1. I'm not being snide here; it really looks like an art installation. The interior is quaint and charming, the tiny patch of lawn is great for a relaxed barbecue and a quick dip in the splash pool, the slipper-type bathtub is a real treat. We even had a close encounter with the local wildlife: I climbed out of bed one morning and when I tried to put on my shoes, I felt something wriggling in one of them. It turned out to be a large frog, which promptly hopped away and hid under a box. When I lifted the box with the intention of moving the frog to a safe spot outdoors, I discovered it had been joined by a friend. Here's the odd thing: I later moved both frogs outside and sat down to breakfast. Within 15 minutes, both frogs had made their way back into the cottage: they moved individually, about three minutes apart, and kept such a low profile that you would have sworn they were trying to hide something. For the record, we would go back anytime.

Thanks for your review - it is refreshing to have such a keen observer that was so entertained by our Karoo wildlife. We too have had a few interesting encounters with our toads - on two of our trips to Cape Town we have inadvertently taken a toad with us on our journey - one in a shoe and the other in my bag. On discovery in Cape Town, we had to arrange transport for them back to Prince Albert via friends!!
