Alhoewel nie luuks nie, was alles in die cabin wat ons nodig gehad het. En suite ablusie geriewe sal geriefliker wees.

Beautiful reserve, visitors will definitely need high clearance vehicle to drive to remote cottages. Cottage needs some maintenance work on the facilities. Lovely view from cottage was the highlight of our trip.
