      The cottage is perfect - just big enough and has everything you need. The river is safe to swim in and a lovely cool experience on a hot day.

      My biggest concern about this place was while staying here with my wife, was the safety issue, as we got the impression we would be in total isolation.. and to put your mind at ease. You very safe! The no electricity was awesome, a chance to switch off and re connect. The peacefulness of the Old Sam's Cottage is intoxicating.. you short of nothing and the Corrie and Cecilia were absolute legends.. and there's a swimming hole ;) which was a nice surprise aswell. We thoroughly enjoyed our 3 nights at Old Sam's Cottage and will definitely be back again.The Zebras, Elands, Springbok were an amazin...

      The cottage was perfectly simple, clean and spacious with a touch of creativity where it mattered. It was equipped well with the basic necessities and we really enjoyed firing up the donkey! With the Eland and one Zebra grazing about and the birds singing away, we felt so relaxed as we enjoyed our time out. We took a nice walk to the horses and ended up kayaking down the river. Highly recommended and would love to go back again.
