                      The lodge is beautiful.The kitchen basin should be inside. It was cold, rain and wind to do dishes outside.The furniture in the lounge was not comfortable and one couch broken.

                      Views are incredible, lovely cabins, lovely demarcated viewing points and walks. The ablutions are so clean and well designed. Outside boma area and seated area very well designed and comfortable. Cabins are lovely spacious and well equipped! Only complaint is very hard mattresses. Lovely hosts, very impressive cabins and ablutions.

                      This is the first time we went Glamping. Was not what i expected. The road to the resort was very bad, you should have a warning for high clearance 4x4, suv or double cab. The beds were hard as rock and the cabins were not very insulated. They could have had extra bedding as one thin duvet was not enough. My tent setup would have been a lot more comfortable. The place it self was very nice with amazing view. Will i go back no. Establishments response:Hi Dirk. Thanks for the review. I do feel its worth responding to some of your comments.

                      If you are looking to get away from the hustle and bustle of city life, this is the place to go. Shaun and Bridgette are super friendly hosts and have provided a perfect environment to relax and unwind. Thanks both of you for your wonderful hospitality. You will definitely see us again and again - Alec and Wendy

                      We enjoyed the stay in a very comfortable little self-catering wooden chalet. The hosts were welcoming. My dogs loved it, however it was definitely tick season. As the whole place is new, there aren't yet developed paths/trails into the valley. Once those are established to enable some proper walks, it'll be fab. ;-)
