We were a party of 6 people. Our original plan was to stay for 1 night but when we got there everyone was intrigued by the animals and the accommodation looked comfortable,the host were friendly and most helpful, they were flexible with our plans and very knowledgeable about the area. Instantly we decided to extend our stay another night. There was a good spread for breakfast and we got to try ostrich omelet for a small fee. Overall lovely place with good vibes. Value for money. Remember you are staying on a farm the experience is totally different from that of a hotel. Pleasant experience.
