              What a special quiet with fantastic views from the deck, definitely a place to get away from the hustle and bustle! Recommended for couples who need some time for themselves!

              The area was very pretty and we saw some game. However we found the farm small and not a lot of game viewing. The camp site was very pleasant and the staff were very efficient and friendly. Pity that the restaurant was not open. Pool and facilities were well maintained. A lovely spot for a weekend of camping. We did bring home a few ticks, so not sure what can be done about that. Thanks for having us. The one problem was the constant planes overhead and late into Sunday night they were still flying.

              Breathtaking view, wish we had stayed longer. Everything you need is provided down to firewood and firelighters. Great experience and friendly accommodating staff.
