The owner is very hands on, he checked on us daily. Great venue, The place is great and will be returning in a few months.It would be great for them to add more abolition facilities and a pool. Maybe sell ice cubes on the property although driving out to town is not that bad.

I love that it is close to Johannesburg and surrounds, i love the quietness and homeliness. what could improve is the roads leading to the lodge and the roads inside the lodge , muddy when it rains. a children play pan can be build or erected. a swimming pool would be a plus. another set of bathrooms closer to the entrance. more fish in the dams. a tuck-shop with basic goods. Tents to hire , but it is very adventurous, but pls take mosquitoes repellent and fly spray and other goggos spray, it was my first time but it will definitely not be my last. and a chapel will be great for weddings and...
