The Thatched Wooden Cabins

Thatched wooden cabins have partly open sides and are arranged in adjoining family or detached double rooms with twin beds and simple amenities. Duvets, pillows, blankets and towels are provided by us. (And hot water bottles for those winter nights!)

Bathrooms are fenced toilet/shower complexes and are discreetly situated among the cabins. We pride ourselves on our bushveld simplicity and do not have mod cons such as electrical power or running water – our showers are safari showers and water is heated through an old-fashioned “donkey boiler”.

We provide simple, tasty meals, prepared in traditional bush style on the open fire. Included, too, are tea, coffee, fruit juice, rusks, fruit and snacks throughout the day and on your daily drives. Drinks are sold at a nominal mark-up and not at usual “hotel” prices. We have a good wine selection sourced from local South African vineyards. Guests help themselves to drinks and we use an honesty bar system.

It has always been our mission to provide an exclusive, unique wilderness experience for our guests, with minimal ecological impact on our surroundings.
