Very lovely place to stay, was nice and quiet. really enjoyed our weekend away.Only negative thing I have to say is...not good for low cars to go the gravel road / rock road, even though we were going slowly my tire still got sliced by the rocks. otherwise will defiantly go back just in a higher vehicle.

When we arrived they owners Thomas and Brenda was absolutely fantastic. Showed us around and took us on a little tour. This whole weekend was amazing from the moment we arrived there. It is not fancy it is just what a person needs. From an outside toilet and bushshower. Its an experience and a half. I would recommend anyone to go have a look see whats so amazing. Next to Houtbosdorp is Tribe Adventours. So we still need to check that out but for us Sun City was the place to be. It was really quite. Just what you need to break away. Thank you

Thank you for a great weekend away. It was so quiet. The view from our stoep was amazing. Will bring the kids along next time.

Hut is ontoeganklik en nie soos wat op internet fotos vertoon word nie. Uiters beperkte spasie. Op oog af nie baie aanloklik. Cater beslis nie vir die gesofistikeerde Toeris nie. Ons het nie van hierdie Akommodasie gemaak nie en moes R800 daarvoor inboet. Groot teleurstelling, sal dit nie vir Ander aanbeveel nie.
