It was special - everything you need in the flat, plus a lot of extras not expected in a self catering flat. We had a wonderfull time chatting with the owners, they felt like family when we left. Caring and loving people. A lot of highlights that you will not always get - the dog had babies, die kinders het appelkose gepluk en vir ons gegee. Although it is a working farm, the atmosphere were peacefull and quiet. I do not have words to describe our wonderfull stay at this farm.

Lovely setting overlooking a dam with totally private accommodation. Peaceful gem amongst the farm animals and excellent bird life... a winner all around!

Trevor and Grants hospitality was the best I have ever experienced. There was so much on over. This place doesn't just give you the basics but everything you can dream of and more. They are amazing with the kids and there is all kinds of animals to amuse them. We had a little rowing boat and spend a fair amount of time on the water. We will deffinitly be back.

We loved our weekend on this working farm, for young and old there is much fun to be had. We were lucky enough to be there when there was a litter of puppies, an orphaned calf, a cupboard full of kittens and an aviary full of tiny coloured birds. Thank you Grant for the big-hearted hospitality.

We had a lovely time at Walkabout. The cottage is well equipped and very cozy. If you need peace and quite and some time to rechange your batteries - this is the place for you! And the hospitality - thanks Trevor, Grant and Charmaine for the welcome and the extra treats!!! Pure Vrystaat-gasvryheid!!
