  • We had a late arrival last night and were met at the gate by friendly helpful staff. The stay at the guesthouse was peaceful with a comfortable bed, good linen and a clean well equipped kitchen. Special thanks to Baby Rose and Heinrich. Will definitely stay again.
  • If you are a fan of the African cultures then this amongst the places you should visit. You get to learn quite a lot about the San people and how they have lived over the past years. I thought they were extinct but nah. They still do exist. They a language not far from Xhosa but with a different meaning and spelling. You get the clicks.
  • Informative Tractor Ride. MTB's to hire @ R50.00 /h. MTB track and Hiking trails. Small Medicinal and Culinary gardens. Many plants needs to be replaced due to the drought. Eland Burger and Milkshake to be recommended. Picture hall full of Informational pamphlet. Come for Brunch, spend the Day. Accommodation varies from Tents to Guesthouse. Building work in Progress.
  • Went there with a huge group. Service was quick. Food was basic but tasty. Interior decoration a acceptable. Good bar facilities. Plenty of parking. Seating available inside and outside.
  • Friendly staff and good food. Best hake and chips on the West Coast. They also have a awesome mtb trail. Put it on your list to visit when you are in the area.
