My 3 friends and I had a very pleasant stay with Kim and Gordon at Amanzimoti Guesthouse. It was wonderful having them pick us up at the airport after we returned our rental car to take us to their guesthouse. We had a pleasant restful evening and a delicious breakfast --after which they took us back to the airport for our flight to Capetown.Thanks, Kim and Gordon!
