We stayed in the Gypsey caravan and it was much more private then the Chapel so we were glad that the Chapel was booked, it is much more in the middle of campers and people.

This place is a little hidden gem. It was uncrowded and such a pleasure to be at.

I loved our little hide away from the world... The Chapel was a cute self contained hut, which we just loved to bits. stunning sunsets and the sunrise. Loved the kayaking, but he best thing is the people who run the place. Thank you Vicky & sister and Koossie for making this journey after 11 years from being away from SA so memorable. I can assure you it will not be that long again before i'm back. lotsa love Unchen and Walter xxxx

We had a wonderfull stay. Most beautiful sceens of nature. The children enjoyed the canoeing right up to the waterfall. Nice to have a freezer for your meat while camping. Bathrooms very clean and nice to have a hotshower. Will definately go back.
