                              Unfortunately we were very disappointed and even cut our visit short as a result. The gravel road stretching approx 25kms is in a very bad state - we drove our own small car and it was nerve-racking... Would not advise driving any smaller than a SUV or better on those roads, unless you drive a rental or don't much care about possibly damaging your wheels/tires or getting stone chips in the paint work.

                              Perhaps the Dirt Road Could Be Looked at in the Future as Small Cars traveling during rainy days might suffer damages.

                              This is an ideal location when one wants to unwind, and be away from everything. The nature around here is wonderful, and there are various activities one can partake in.
