From the moment we arrived at the Thorntree, we knew we were in a special place. And as luck would have it, we were the only guests that particular night. Since August is late winter in South Africa, there are not a lot of travelers. As a result, we had a beautiful room overlooking the valley with our own little verandah, and a gorgeous dinner of roast ostrich beside the wood fire in the dining room. We discovered when leaving that the staff had even washed our car! To say we were impressed is an understatement.
Our host, Louis, was most affable and quite willing to chat since no one else was there.
All in all, this is a beautiful classic country hotel offering the very best of South African hospitality, which is saying a lot.
