    "What an absolute pleasure to find this treasure in the midst of a dry Acacia forest. Such an overwhelming welcome we received on arrival and the cottage is equipped with every thing you require.<br>The bedrooms are well furnished and the facility is spotless in all areas. The bird life and wild animal calls during the day and night were second to none. Certainly will visit again and will recommend to our friends and family. Well done to Gay and Willem on what you have achieved here."
