We really enjoyed our stay at Medike Mountain Reserve. Although the drive was difficult it was well worth the climb up into the mountain. Our self serve cabin was lovely and had everything we needed including a beautiful star filled sky in the evening. Our host was welcoming and did everything to make sure we had anything we needed. We encourage you to stay at Medike if you are looking for a little slice of heaven.
Now that is a place i will never forget. It brings one back to earth, it was awesome, the stillness, the views, animals we saw. My husband and I took the Boabab trail and that was a great adventure. Not a place for small children but if you want to get your teenager away from the tv or mixit and spend time with mom and dad now that is the place to do it. Want to rekindle your relationship with your loved ones or bond or fix your marriage Medike is the place to do it. The owners of the place were awesome, I have never seen such a fit man before and that week i saw a man who never let one... see more
A great place to break away - we could have spend more than a week easily if only we had the time - perfect to relax, ie to get back and deal only with the basics. We just loved it and had a superb time.
The stay was very pleasant and peaceful. The mountains were beautiful and the hikes were challenging.
This is one of the most stunning places we have visited, and Hannes and Marietjie are such special people. We really enjoyed our stay and will definitely go back there for a longer stay.
