We came here on our honeymoon and had just such a fantastic time! We were there for 3 days but I wish we could have stayed longer. It's like an oasis in a desert. Really lovely views from the cabins overlooking the river & waterfall and very private. Thank you to Louie & Charlene for making our stay extra special....

I completely understand your frustration and disappointment Cobus. Your experience was unacceptable and appalling to say the least. As new management we strive to hold ourselves to the highest standard. Each and every guest is important to us, even those who were let down prior to our arrival. I would like to extend a humble apology and sincerely hope that...

We stayed in the camping area for three nights and ate in the resturant twice. Ablutions do need some attention but we're clean.

A rustic, fairly remote getaway in a spectacular Karoo setting in the Kammanassie valley. Great for outdoor activities such as walking and cycling. Hospitable hosts, Peace and quiet. Large campsite could accommodate a cycle tour quite easily.
