                  Its my favourite 'stay over place in that area. Not my first and also not the last. To be straight forward the road is not car friendly but my bakkie handles it well. With my last stay the basin tap were leaking, i reported it and i presume it was fixed. The overall stay in my opinion should get a 4 star. But i will definately be back shortly with a visit . I just love the silence at night and the birdlife in the day. Keep it up priced well. Thank you

                  Our stay in Camp Nguni was really great. The staff are friendly and helpful, and the peace and quiet contributed to an amazingly relaxing time. There are many hiking trails to explore, and the view from the highest point in the Free State of the Vredefort Dome is magnificent. Ample bird life and game in the area. The communal kitchen is well equipped with large fridge and table top gas stove (no oven), but bring your own sharp knives.

                  If you're looking for a bush get away complete with bad access road and worse cell reception, Stephan and his team have the place for you.The tents are clean as are the bathrooms. The shared lapas have everything you need to make a meal and store your food. DSTV on a flat screen for the kids and the most amazing night time skies.We were booked at Thwane for eight days and my two young children weren't bored once. There are lovely hikes on the farm and loads to do in the surrounding area.Truly a special week away. Thanks to Stephan and his amazing Thwane team. We'll definitely see you again!

                  Absolutely loved our stay. Would love to have stayed longer.Some suggestions:A mat in the bathroom for when you climb out of the shower.A mat at the entrance to dust off feet before entering tent.Otherwise facilities are clean, comfortable and the location is awesome.
