A nice place to stay, with friendly people. Plunged into nature and very close to Marakele Park.The room was comfortableAnd even if it was cold, we had a worm electric blanket. They also offered us breakfast, which was a real meal!

The house was big and sitting outside at a large table with 5 guests great. Apart from that we nearly got electrocuted each time we switched on the light, had sparking lamps, and a toilet that did not flush. It was raining a lot and the roof leaked on pillows and in the lounge. The lodge really needs a renovation and modernisation.
