Thereā€™s great hiking trails on the farm with one leading to the peak of the mountain adjacent to a waterfall, with breathtaking views! The farm foreman and his wife are also very kind and caring people, going the extra mile to ensure you feel welcome during your stay! Would definitely recommend this place to anyone in need of a break! We will most certainly come back again! 10/10

  • Firstly you need a 4x4 as the 4km dirt road is not suitable for a normal small car. Our Luxury Tent Chalet was absolutely fantastic. Clean, neat and tidy. Anything that you need is in the kitchen, with a build in braai, big fridge, fully stocked ice and also dough if you would like to make your own bread. There is a a fountain hike where you can sit & enjoy the natural spring fountain water and braai area. Thank you team for this amazing gem šŸ’Ž we had an excellent time and experience. We celebrated our 1 year anniversary and wouldn't have done it anywhere else.
