                      If you had survive the gravel road. You find a gem of a place. Quite, peaceful and you can walk and enjoy the veld. Only thing we can say that was uncomfortable was the afternoon sun in the unit we stayed in. Rae and every one on the lodge let you feel welcome. Thank you very much.

                      The cottage was clean and well equipped . Bed was very comfortable . Only recommendation would be a space inside to enjoy meals if the weather does not allow.

                      You can introduce another electrical system,and not use the generator,but besides that,the place is superb.

                      The host and staff were very friendly. The area is very quite and secluded , best place for perfect relaxation. I would definitely book again.
