The lodge is reached via 5 km on a gravel road. It consists of three individually decorated cottages on a hill overlooking the beautiful Swartberg mountains, each with its own patio. The so-called base-camp, away some 700m, contains the tiny restaurant on a large open patio with a fire-place right in the middle and in front of a small hut used as an open kitchen. The host Jann prepares breakfast and dinner in gourmet style, very delicious, with a different table decoration each time. Creative African artwork everywhere. A small bar provides wine and drinks. In the evening springboks pass by to have their meal, just opposite the dinner table. Wonderful atmosphere under the stars.
A quiet place, very well kept. Nearby: Oudtshoorn, Cave, Swartberg pass, Prince Albert.
