We stayed at Stanford river lodge when the floodgates of the heavens opened up and saturated the surface area with almost 200mm of rain, we did stress a little about the rising water but Valda and John are stunning people who made sure we were at ease, comfortable and well looked after .... they kindly offered us the use of their landy to traverse a heavily flooded road which would have otherwise been impossible in our car.
We went to a restaurant called art café in Standford along with other German guests from the lodge, sipped good wine called veldfire, yah, good indeed and ate delicious pizza ... and all thanks to our hosts we were well fed and in good spirits despite the deluge of rain.
Standford river lodge is an excellent spot if you are looking either for tranquility or adventure.
The river flanked on one side by the mountains and bird life is rejuvenating for the soul but with roads that lead of onto the beach and the little town that we did not quite get a chance to explore,
I can say this with utmost confidence ... adventure awaits yet more ... we will be back!!!
