The lodge is ideally sited 50 minutes from JHB and so is a quick getaway. However Kingfisher Chalet which we stayed in (2 couples) is claustophobically small. Apart from the porch which was pleasant ...there is no place to sit indoors. The kitchen had 2 small old pots and a pan...3 glasses and 4 mugs. There were no bowls etc. I understand rustic but at R1200 per night...a little more thought and care would justify the price. Also the dams were dry... And the 2 that had some water was stagnant and really unhealthy looking.

Lovely quick getaway from the concrete jungle, few minutes and you there and feels worlds away! Simple but adequate!
