      We all loved the back to basic relaxing weekend. Alois met us at the gate as promised. Thank you to him for setting up the connection so that I could use the CPAP machine to sleep. Very rustic but all the basic needs were available. The road is not very good for someone who does not have a 4 x 4 or bakkie but we were advised of this by Rob before our trip. The farm atmosphere was so relaxing and quiet. We all loved the 98 year old house as it has such a homey feel.

      Situated at the base of the cliff where the vultures nest, we had the best viewing spot in Marakele. The farm house is rustic but exactly how it should be for its location and perfect for relaxing inside or outside.

      We had a weekend with 3 adults and 4 small kids at this lovely place. A good place to have a chilling weekend within in the nature!
