About Dolittle Cottages

Two cottages in a peaceful setting. Our three resident donkeys will greet you, and our roaming chickens might pop by to say hello. If country living is your thing and you love animals, you'll love your stay with us.

Both cottages have one bedroom with a queen size bed, and one bedroom with two single beds (bedding and towels provided), a bathroom with bath and shower, a fully equipped open-plan kitchen/lounge (crockery and cutlery is provided), a queen size sleeper couch in the lounge area, a braai on the patio, off-road parking behind a security gate, and an alarm system.

We live right next door and guests are welcome to use our splash pool to cool off anytime. Someone is always available either on the premises or on call if there's anything you need that isn't provided. We'll make sure there is coffee, tea, sugar and milk when you arrive and that the ice trays are full. There will also be enough wood for your first braai...on us!

We loved our stay. The cottage was modern and clean. The surroundings are peaceful and the hosts were very friendly. Thanks again.

What a wonderful little cottage at such a reasonable price. It was clean, modern, new and well-kept. Fully equipped so had everything we need which came in very handy. It was very easy to find in the town and close to anywhere we needed to go. The only problem I had was that we had to leave! Highly recommended to anyone and we will definitely be back. A huge thank you to the hosts Lisa and Oostewald for being so friendly and helpful.Establishment's response:Hi there, Our very first SafariNow guests were such a pleasure to host, super friendly people who will always be welcome back anytime!...
