Thora Boloka is just the most charming private cottage with the most beautiful setting ever. We spent 5 nights there for our 15th wedding anniversary and it was exactly what I was hoping for. The cottage really has everything one might need to cook up a storm and even though there is no electricity the fridge, freezer, and gas plate stove worked so well, I managed to make better food there than at home. The stoep with its view overlooking the valley made it hard to decide between going for a walk in the forest or just drinking another glass of red on the stoep. I overheard my 4 year old twin boys saying to one another that they really wouldn't mind staying there forever :) My husband spent an afternoon of birdwatching with David and was amazed at his knowledge and charm. Def recommended for bird lovers. Lisa was the most amazing host. Thanks to her and her wonderful team of people that made our stay so unforgettable.
