Spent 2 nights at this delightful charming small resort/lodge- just 6 chalet style cabins - with dramatic views across a small game park to the imposing Spioenkop mountain which was the site of the Anglo-Boer war battle in 1899.
Run by Simon and Cheryl , charming granny Fiona with their young family, and pets in attendance we were welcomed warmly by the staff and could not have been more at home.
Meals are taken with other guests at a communal table and the food is excellent with emphasis on local , well sourced ingredients. Well chosen good value wine list too.
Activities offered are game park walks- a great experience among rhino , giraffe ,zebra etc all while on foot! , riding on a selection of trails ,and the highlight for us, Simons battlefield tour bringing the scene to life with his in depth knowledge of that period and his narrative skills. There is a small swimming pool ideal for cooling off after a hot day and the sundowner in the bush memorable
