Unfortunately I did not have the pleasure to overnight at the resort but have done a Game Drive or Safari that I enjoyed but I had the pleasure to have dined there a few times and this is a MUST DO when ever you in the OUDTSHOORN area, even if you just make a stop to have a beer. Entrance is free so you welcome to drive in and go enjoy a meal or drink. The setting is unbelievable beautiful with the outside deck build around a very large dam where you can see Hippo, lots of very large fish in the ware and maybe a Elephant or two.
But lets get back to the food, for lunch you must try a ROOSTERKOEK, out of this world. You can actually try any thing on the menu. Dinner is some thing else the BUFFET is EXCELLENT as well as the ALA CARD menu, you can try the Venison and Ostrich any time.
