We had a lovely stay in this beautiful spot. The host is very helpful and friendly and the house has everything you could need. We particularly liked that every room has it's own outdoor shower.We will definitely be back!

Surrounded by bush with no one else in sight. Awesome firepit for great family & friends hangouts. Yet you still have all the comforts of home. Great spot, very good accommodation and I will be returning.

Lovely place. Enjoyed the separate bedroom/chalets so you can have a bit of alone time if you are in a large group. The kitchen is well equipped. Loved the outside showers. Plenty of animals walked passed the lodge. Excellent location. No other homes in site so you really feel like you are alone in the Bush.
