Great tour given with a lot of gusto - well described with a lot of enthusiasm and interest in and knowledge of the subject as well as general South African history. Travel from historic site to historic site was set at just the right tempo and conveyed the sense of a great historic event unfolding. Also a lot of broad sweeping and breathtaking landscape taken in during the tour.
The lodge itself is very well appointed and looked after with a great deal of care. Despite it's apparent isolation it has surprisingly good amenities. Rooms were very clean and decorated in a contemporary and welcoming manner. Meals served were imaginative, well prepared and service was faultless.
The hosts were very friendly, approachable and made the whole stay pleasurable and are obviously very enthusiastic about the history and also the landscape and people of that area.
It was a welcome interlude from the World Cup mayhem during the rest of our stay in South Africa! Just a shame that the Brazil Portugal match in Durban was a bit flat later!
