It is so very disappointing when you arrive at a place and it looks nothing like the pics on your website/ad.My family has booked for years through your site and we often go with more than one family on holiday.Of late there has been a tendency to collect full payment before arriving at the venue and whilst this might be very convenient for SafariNow and the owners of the venues, it leaves your actual client with no real recourse if we find the venue to be nothing as advertised.I sincerely hope someone who really cares reads this because I will book again through Safari but in future I will...

We stayed there over the long weekend in June.We were 4 couples (so 8 people in total). The guesthouse had a kitchen big enough for us to make family meals, with enough fridge space and an indoor braai which was great as the weather was cold.The lounge area was a little small, it couldn't seat 8 people, but the dinning room table was perfect for 8 people.The house in general had everything we needed. The domestic came to do dishes and make beds everyday and the gardener cleaned the braai everyday.We had a fantastic time in Clarens and cant wait to go back!

Great experience, location excellent, very comfortable walking distance to town. House beautiful with all the facilities one could wish for. Lovely massive yard for kids to play in. This house is perfect for a large family or group of friends.

We really enjoyed staying at The Gables in Clarins. Rob and his wife made us feel so welcome, and are very nice people. We had 6 children, my 3 sons and my sisters 3 children, the kids loved Rob and his wife. It felt like a second home. And what a beautiful place. You can hear your own thoughts. We loved it and will most definitely visit Rob and his beautiful wife at The Gables again.
