A Hidden Gem
Kirkwood in picking season is a sight to see. Trailers bursting with oranges. A lovely place to retreat to. Close to the Addo Elephant Park, not far from Uitenhage and only a bit further an you are in PE. Kronenhoff Guest House is an absolute delight right in the middle of the town. A lot of surrounding Private Reserves and accomodation on the farms. This is one not to miss if you are in the area.
