A wonderful location, a warm friendly family atmosphere, good lodges and wonderful tours, not to mention great food, all sum this place up. But don't come here if you don't like children, extended family and dogs - they are all part of the place! Simon and Cheryl are great hosts and nothing too much trouble. This was our first visit to this part of South Africa and we would certainly come again. Simon's Battlefield tours (Spioenkop and Colenso) brought to life the awful battles that took place here between the Brits and the Boers and were very moving. We also enjoyed a great walk in the private game reserve. The emphasis of this place is on an Eco-friendly approach which is admirable apart from leaving the room towels rather grey and unappetising! Sorry about the Fitness Centre rating which is inappropriate, can't get rid of it on the web site ...
