      The place is neat and beautiful. No shortage of nothing. You literally just have to bring yourself and clothing. Big thumbs up for Braam who was of such great help

      We stayed for three night at Skilpadvlei and enjoyed the accommodation. The reception and support by Braam was excellent. You cant find this type of accommodation at this rate anywhere along this region (hope you keep it that way..). See you again soon
