We have just spent three wonderful days in this rustic paradise. Simon and Cheryl and their delightful staff make you feel at home in their rural retreat overlooking the Spion Kop mountain. Each chalet is charmingly decorated and spotlessly clean. The food was excellent - the breakfast with home made bread and muffins was the best we have had. The highlights for us was an incredible walk in the adjoining nature reserve with Simon where we encountered a white rhino and her calf at close, but safe range - a real heart beating moment! Another was the tour to Spion Kop and Simon's explanation on the Boer Wars; he is a knowledgable historian who makes it both interesting and evocative. A must if you are travelling in Kwa Zulu Natal.
