You can't beat this location! The views are amazing. We loved hiking to the waterfall. The pool area is great, and the my son even caught two fish in the dam.
Views, privacy, friendly service, dam, swimming pool. Good quality beds and bedding. Deck with braai. Looking at moon and bright stars in the quiet evenings. Just loved everything, thank you.
Location is perfect, the lake view breathtaking. Fun activities to do as well and relax.
