          The staff are friendly and helpful. Everyone goes out of their way to make the holiday enjoyable. Should a problem occur, the staff rectify it as soon as they are informed of the problem. A plus is that there is plenty of onsite secure parking.

          as long as there is no stagnant water in the vicinity , you wont have a problem. South Africa is also entering into autumn and it gets a bit nippy .Mosquitos dont thrive in the cold
