                      Snuggled in the feet of the Maskam Mountain and the Gifberg (Poison Mountain - so named because the Bushmen used the berries of these mountains to poison their arrows) this delightful venue had everything we needed. Spacious shower, well organised kitchen, comfortable warm bed. We had a glorious rest in the expansive peace of the North West Province. Hostess Ancarene is most gracious, and cares for all your needs. She will also make meals if you give her 24 hours notice. We bought packs of the organic rooibos they grow on the farm, plus there is marmalade and grape jam also for sale - all...

                      We stayed for only one night on out way from Namibis to Cape Town. We loved the place and loved dinner and. breakfast being brought to our cottage (berggans). And the food was great and more than enough. for a family of five.

                      This route is in the Maskam Mountain with stunning views of the valley. The route itself is very challenging; you'll need skills and a real 4 x 4 vehicle to enjoy this ride. There are also braai facilities high up in the mountain. This is a very...
