Stayed here for 2nights. Paid 1100 for 2nights, 'breakfast (no bread left @7am), lunch (cheese salad no meat), dinner (inedible chicken) tour of a reptile 'park', cool cheetah sanctuary, and OUTSTANDING guided tour of the Addo national park. ! He was so helpful and informative.
This place is very rural and expect to rough it out but feel safe. There is wifi in the bar only. the running water is brown and the house we stayed in was freezing cold due to no glass in the outer door.
We were left with a nasty surprise of an extra 1000 for the shuttle from PE (75k). it would have been nice to know this in advance.
Would not recommend unless desperate.
