“Perfect getaway for some peace and quiet away from the city”

John Smith

“Hunting, a pool table, a dart board, a fire pit, a braai and excellent accommodation – what more do you need for a boys weekend!”

Johan van der Merwe

Really enjoyed my weekend at the nature reserve, the friendly game ranger took us on a game drive and we also fed the Buffalo with him, amazing experience, the bridge made of ropes by the river is a good spot to take pictures. It was amazing.
