Damages
Guests will be liable for any damages and breakages caused by you or your guests

Other
- DSTV is available in all chalets (select channels)
- Please bring your own Blue Tooth speakers or CD Players but please consider other guests.
- Please close the lapa blinds in the event of a big storm
- Once you turn off the main road it becomes a dirt gravel road all the way to the main gate of the Lodge. During heavy rains the roads can become very muddy and slippery. We have had very few guests actually get stuck before but we have pulled them out with the tractor. Having said that most of the time this is not an issue it is only in excessively heavy rains and this will happen in any country area where there are dirt gravel roads.

Noise/Music
Please consider other guests with noise levels, especially later in the evening

Fires/Braai
Please light fires in designated area’s only. PLEASE DO NOT MAKE FIRES IN THE WEBBER BRAAIS AS YOU WILL BE LIABLE TO PAY FOR A REPLACEMENT WEBBER.
Please make sure all fires are out at night, especially in winter as the wind will easily blow coals onto the dry grass and this will result in huge fires and loss to property and loss of wild life!

Wildlife
Please respect our wild life
Please be aware of snakes, mainly if walking in the bush

Electricity/Lighting
There is a possibility of a power outage during a big storm or with load shedding from Eskom - but this does not usually last very long, there are candles and also cooking is on gas so any power outage will not affect cooking. We cannot be held responsible for any power outages and do not offer refunds as a result of power failures.

Outside light Switches
- Outside Pool area main light switch behind the couch in the Lapa
- Lapa light switches one as you go in the door and the other in the left hand corner as you go into the lapa
- Outside lights for main house in main bedroom next to bed in left hand corner
- Outside lights for Main House veranda are on wall on your left if facing the front door, just plug in and switch on at the wall.

Suggested items to bring
- Board Games
- DSTV Decoder for main house PVR or Explorer, HDMI Cable and remote - Books/Magazines

Tipping
If you feel our general manager has provided you with great service (carrying luggage/lighting fires etc) – please feel free to tip him!

Security

Please ensure all chalets are locked when not in use. (IE: when at lapa/swimming pool and going to sleep at night)
Please keep your valuables in a safe location (cellphones, cameras, wallets, handbags)

              We had to leave early and tried phoning the two numbers provided several times. We couldn't get hold of anyone to open the gates for us. So we landed up unscrewing the lock on the gate.

              We loved everything about our stay except that the road leading to our destination was not very comfortable and directions to the spot could be improved.Our comfort was disturbed by the fact that the rooms were infested with flies. The door/windows doesn't have a sieve to prevent flies from entering the room when the main door is open. Facilities and Manager was outstanding. It was a pleasant and very memorable stay altogether!
