      This was an old establishment but it was very comfortable and a lovely big kitchen for us to use. Everything we needed for an overnight stay.

      The lodge needs to be upgraded and linen and bathroom facilities need attention.

      Clean and basic. No TV. That was fine by me. We were the only visitors that night.

      Proximity to the Gariep Dam and views of the dam from nearby. No hand towel or soap in the bathroom.
