Die diere wat kom wei en water drink op jou voorstoep is, is n bonus. Die personeel en veral die bestuurder Henry was baie vriendelik en behulpsaam en het ons baie spesiaal laat voel. Niks was vir hul te veel moeite!! Ons sal definitief weer soontoe gaan en ook ons vriende saam neem> Dit was n fantastiese twee dae by Rooiberg Lodge!
