Fantastic first night back in Africa, a comfortable drive from J'Burg on our way north. The rondavel was clean, warm and spacious. Comfortable bed, quality bedding, reading lamps. Good shower and clean bathroom. There weren't many guests and it was peaceful and quiet. Lovely surroundings and great furnishings with lots of nooks and crannies to enjoy. Around 3pm, we went...

On our 5 day road trip through Mpumalanga and Limpopo this was the best dinner, the tastiest steak we had! Compliments to Johanna and Jackson but... More

Stayed for a night in the family room (3) on the way to Johannesburg. Arriving in the lobby, you walk into a warm decently decorated area. The check-in was quick and efficient. The hotel was really quiet as it was mid-week. I walked to the room with the receptionist and I was really disappointed in the quality of the room.... More
