                      Sandra is an exceptional host, always friendly and helpful. We loved the camp setting, it had everything that we needed.

                      If you want total peace and quiet, this is the place. Our rondavel was spotlessly clean and just perfect for the two of us. Our hostess, Sandra, was welcoming, always available and never overbearing. We thoroughly enjoyed our weekend in the bush!

                      Thank you so much to Sandra and everyone else for a great weekend getaway and being such great hosts. You really gave us more than we expected.We had an incredible time and it was exactly what we needed to get out of the city for a while. Accommodation was great and we were very thankful for the space we had for our two Labradors to run around not feel abandoned when we were not at the cottage.We will definitely be back!!

                      Sandra was able to accommodate us on very short notice. She was very friendly and hospitable. We enjoyed being in the natural and peaceful setting. We travelled as a family and our children absolutely loved the entertainment available, such as swimming and walking in nature.

                      We enjoyed our stay at Olievenhoutsrus. Much to see on the farm itself and the region is overwhelming. Two nights were too short.
