                              Too much noise till late at night. The big dam was very low.

                              Was very peaceful we absolutely loved it. Would have just liked the dishes washed & maybe replenish the dams with some fish but otherwise everything was so amazing. Thank you

                              Daar is nie 'n dam soos op die fotos nie. Stroom is verskiriklik nou waar jy moet visvang. Ons het wel vyftien visse gevang.Fasiliteite is nie na wense nie. Klein boompies waar ons gekamp het. Ons het vroeer vertrek a.g.v van die hitte wat ondraaglik was. Abusieblokke te ver van dam no 4.
