          Was at first a little surprised that there was no cellphone reception. I must have missed it when making the booking. But it was a real blessing in disguise. No calls or messages from work and no social media distractions. Visiting the vultures is a must. Such a special experience. But remember to check with your hosts first. We will definitely be back.

          This is an awesome little gem in the heart of Lady Grey. We had a lovely overnight stay. Just the solar power that was a small problem. Apart from that wonderful place to relax and be close to nature!

          Loved your resort and its off-grid isolation.Will definitely use it again if I pass that way in the future. Have already recommended it to family.

          Appreciated the braai area, since we were travelling with tent only, and the evening was quite windy :) - so the indoor braai area was lovely with lots of space; area is beautiful, hospitable hosts - Ian came round in the evening and ensured everyone was fine; we enjoyed our stay!
