                                      Walking amongst buck, wildebeest, zebra and giraffe on small tracks crisscrossing the game farm was great. Very peaceful and quiet setting so close to Pretoria. Ours was a very large fenced house providing adequate facilities to house at least 6 adults and several children in comfort. We missed some minor items like bread and veggie knifes, a corkscrew but nothing too serious for a 2-3 night stay.

                                      Electricity when off Friday and when I called the response was rude though we were later assisted. The whole weekend we struggled with a fridge that was not working properly. The house was not properly cleaned...we just made the best of our weekend regardless....the place is not bad though it can do with some improvements!!! one of the Staff members Tshepo..was great he was the one assisting us better than whoever is at the end of the office numbers.....

                                      Good weekend getaway. Comfortable with lovely sunset views. Went on a game drive too and saw game up close.
