                              The ambience is all one could wish for. The rooms are comfortable and well equipped. I thought, however, that the rate should include breakfast.

                              Netjiese skoon oornag verblyf.  Die dame by ontvangs mag maar meer vriendelik en behulpsaam wees die Springbokkies het ons vroegoggend kom verras sal defnitief weer daar oornag. Hout kan maar daar verkoop word aangesien hul n braaiplek adverteer, maar moes ons inry dorp toe om hout te kry.  Ons moes smeek vir stoele by die braai wat nie by die chalet is nie maar onder teen die rivier en het maar self n tafel gaan haal.

                              I booked 2 nights for my family here during the summer and they had an amazing time! Tranquil and beautiful setting on the banks of the Orange River proved to be the perfect place to regroup and share the experiences had of the day gone by. Thanks Ikaia for the lovely time! I will definitely recommend you to all my friends and family.
