  • Called in here on a whim as we drove past. What a special place - so well done. We did not have time to do a guided tour or explore the trails. We just visited the beautiful cultural centre- great...

  • Friendly helpful staff. Beautiful place to stop on your way to the West Coast.
  • The people really make you welcome. I feel it's a place you must visit. And the food is of the best.
  • During your stay, you’re invited for diverse tours, learning about San culture in a very natural and interesting way, with personal stories from people with direct experience. Within the impressive compounds you start to slow down, and start learning (and living?) San lifestyle - very educational and inspirational. Whoever does the menus / food here deserves some serious praise; the menu is original, full of local (often harvested on the property) ingredients and beautifully presented. Combine this with the property’s ‘wellness tea’, and you’re in for a treat. Outdoor spaces are very well kept, with plenty to see and learn (by means of educational plaques scattered around the property). Indoor spaces are very clean, and there s a lot of great artwork to admire and interesting books to read (their own publications is an exceptional print). There is walking/trail running routes, leading you into the veld where you’ll encounter plenty of wildlife, interesting fauna and more - bring binoculars! Accommodation in the tents is basic, yes, but very clean and comfortable. The outdoor shower is a treat!
  • Beautiful place. Amazing food. Will definitely visit again!
  • Our first night in the bush lodge as newlyweds was truly amazing and the staff is so friendly. The breakfast (that's included) is out of this world. Will definitely come again.
