Interaction with guests

I live on the premises in my own house (300m away from the units), so always available or I can be reached by phone if required! I am available to help with info about activities and restaurants. An activity hub with brochures available at the units.

Other things to note

Sorry, no kids under during Dec/jan and 1 - 10 July. We can do laundry. Please ask for a hairdryer or iron if you need one. Large farm or continental breakfast served on request. We have satelite tv in the communal lounge area. We are in nature, so you might encounter insects and other small animals or buck (like bushbuck). We do have the occasional baboons or monkeys passing through. We provide coils to burn and citronella bug spray if required. Very little mosquitoes and they are malaria free. Wear sunscreen and a hat in summer when you go walking and drink lots of water! We have one (old) cat and dog that live at our house, but they won't bother you at all. ! If you can, arrive before dark, as farm roads don't have lights at night (6pm in winter and 8pm in summer). The roads are very safe to travel any time of day, nevertheless.
