    "Klipspringer is a special hide away: the silence is so good for the soul. No power means no TV thus more quality time to spend with your partner. The views are stunning and forever changing. The fynbos are so diverse and spectacular. The A-frame cottage is lovely and clean and well-equipped. The landlady, Marinda met us halfway to direct is to the gate and handed us tge keys. She is very friendly and made us feel welcome. I am so glad that they share this soecial place with others."

  • "What an Amazing place!"

    23 July 2018

    "This is by far the most beautiful cottage that we have ever stayed at. It has the most beautiful sunsets and sunrises as the cottage was built so that it gets Sun all day through. The amount of effort and detail that went into building this place is also amazing as all the wooden beams were each hand sanded/finished. We also had a glass of wine with the owner, Marinda, at Lord's wines. She was very welcoming and made our visit so much more special. Mcgregor is also a very nice town, we had breakfast and went for wine tasting afterwards and spent some quality time with the locals before heading up to the cottage. The way up to the cottage is a 4/5 difficulty 4 by 4 route which also ads to the fun of the weekend. The photos of this place do not do it justice... We have been to many cottages but this one by far takes the prize for views, remoteness, cozyness etc....Thanks Marinda for a great weekend!"
