We had an overnight stop here when driving from Johannesburg up to Botswana and we loved it! There are 3.2 kms of dirt track from the main road leading to a lovely colonial style farmhouse. We were welcomed by Helena and Kobus and offered a drink outside looking over the garden, the pool and some ostriches watching us over a wall. Helena offered to take us for a drive round their animal reserve before dinner so after a swim and a freshen up we went with her in the landrover for a tour of the lands. This was a lovely surprise and was well worth doing. We saw plenty of animals including the ostriches close up and Helena was very informative and interesting.
We had a super big bedroom with 25 red roses in it!! (we discovered later that they had been left over from a wedding but how nice to put them there for us!), tea/coffee, cakes, chocolates and a bowl of lots of fruits. Dinner in the beautiful dining room was 5 courses and excellent, as was breakfast the following morning before we were waved off on our journey by the very hospitable Helena and Kobus. We hope to return.
