We were a group of 10 friends from Australia travelling Southern Africa. We drove up from Cape Town to Springbok and were not expecting too much in the way of accommodation in this tiny border town. We were so pleasantly surprised by the roominess and homeliness and consider this stay one of our "best finds". The food was plentiful, well prepared and delicious and the cook only too happy to share her recipes. We were in the area in Springtime and the flowers on the way in and out of Springbok were absolutely spectacular. We were sorry that we had not booked for another night or two.
