The venue was extremely nice and clean. The Qunu falls were amazing and the horse ride or walk to get there was a memorable experience. The weather was not in our favour as it rained for most of our short stay at this venue. The outdoors is comparable to some of the more expensive venues we have stayed at in... More

The accommodation (H04) was clean and comfortable - better chairs in the lounge would have been a bonus. It was well equipped for self catering - be sure to take everything as the mini-shop has little to offer and the food at the café was over-priced and very average. The facilities on offer (pool / putt putt / swimming pool... More

The resort is very ideal and peaceful. The unit was cozy especially with the built in fire place that was perfect for those chilly nights. The resort has the most wonderful bar for you to just relax and have some fun. The resort is perfect for either a romantic getaway or for the whole family.
