A week before Christmas we stayed at the Liberty Lodge for three days. We just arrived at South Africa for four weeks.

We had an excellent three-night stay at Liberty Lodge. Right from the time we booked, the owner Ruth was gracious and helpful in offering information and booking activities for us.
