                      Loved the luxurious bed and was blown away by the amenities. The kitchen was superbly equipped and the whole unit so spacious and clean . It is certainly a place to which I would love to return. The only drawback was the access road with the corrugations, but still worth the drive!

                      We stayed at the Fishermans cottage and we enjoyed the lovely surroundings and the blissful peace and quiet. The unit is lovely,but need some maintenance on the floors.

                      We arrived at The Outpost down a pretty good dirt road in a normal car. On arrival one sees unusual looking cows and rocks and a green farm with blesbok eland ostrich and dams. Our unit the Fishermans was awesome and had everything one needs. Amanda was very friendly. Would definitely come back and recommend this place for anyone to stay at who wants to relax and have some time out. It is near Dullstroom which is also nice.

                      We enjoyed a night in the Fisherman's cottage and wow, it was a treat. Breaking away from all the business of the city, sitting on a comfy couch in front of the fireplace (we got a cold night, full moon in a gentle mist, looking out over the dam) ... Certainly lost track of time and just recharged. Our host, Amanda, was amazing. She responded promptly when I sent her a message. With us arriving quite a bit late, she was so accommodating and made sure everything was perfect when we arrived. The coffee for two and rusks was really special, thanks Amanda. Appreciated that you came and said hallo...
