              n Ware 'rusplek langs die pad'! Mooi natuurskoon, goed versorgde chalet, vriendelike gasvrou. Baie dankie!

              This is a hidden gem - rustic and charming. Deep on the farm. One should spend a week here and just relax...

              Would recommend taking the N6 instead of R701 when coming from the north, otherwise you will drive on an awfully long dirt road to get there. The location itself also has some dirt roads so make sure your car has some ground clearance.The rooms are cosy, and the rock pool is nice to visit. Note that the pool has a natural sulphur smell, but it is not overwhelming.

              We really liked the off the beaten track location, very close to the magnificent Orange River. Easy to find and access very easy.The campsite was a little overgrown, however when we visited it was Spring early Summer so everything was growing quickly !The crop irrigation system was flowing the evening we were there which made the camp site very muddy, this was just bad luck, otherwise it would have been fine.
