A warm welcome - a camp as they used to be - rustic-comfortable and close to nature. Private and restful .We were helped with all our needs and found the camp a haven away from the normal commercially centered - electric lights and manicured lawns.

Good day Sonja, thank you for your review. While we endeavor to create a rustic experience, we do of course apologize for the rust that blocked the water pipe in your shower and as you know, we briefed Alois, who fixed it immediately while you...More

Its hard to beat Griffons in my mind. I needed to get out of the city and go somewhere to relax and feel apart of the bush. You honestly couldn't ask for more, nor should you. The manager was amazingly helpful.
