We had a 2 night stay here in the single cottage, which was a lot larger than I expected, with a bedroom, living room, separate kitchen/dining room and a large bathroom. Both nights we had a wonderful sleep, punctuated by the two roaring lions, who are located on the ridge line above the units - what a noise to wake up to!! The kitchen was adequately supplied with pans/plates/utensils, however a microwave would have been a nice addition. Aside from this, the only other thing that would have made our stay a little bit more comfortable would have been a column heater (we lit the fire one nigh...

We loved the peace and tranquility and the location of the farm to outside areas. However, more care needs to be taken as to the monitoring of the arrival and departure times of guests. Arrival time is 1 pm onwards. We arrived at 3.15pm to Cottage no. 1 and tried to check in at the office. There was no-one there. As we parked our car next to the cottage two staff arrived and we were asked by them if the cottage had been cleaned! Problem no. 1! It had not been cleaned and the staff didn't even know what time the previous guests left! No-one checked up at any stage as to how we were doing. I...

Swimming together as a family in the dam, being able to bring my doggy along, seeing sights never seen before like an albino porcupine scuttling along at night. Waking to the roar of lions early in the morning above our cabin. Being able to roam around freely on the farm and observing the animals receiving such good care and love IN HUGE, COMFORTABLE ENCLOSURES. The cottages are comfortable and fully equipped, you only need your food and toiletries. Braai facilities and equipment all included.The only recommendation I can make is maybe mesh enclosures for windows and doors for flies and...
