The generous sized pool is near the camp site, and is a must in the hot Karoo sun.


New additions to our facilities are eco-friendly hot tubs. They are in the bush and very private to The Angulate and The Hinge-back chalets. Perfect for a cold winters night while stargazing with a glass of wine. Also don’t light the fire and you’ve got a cool splash pool for the hot summers.

              The most recent addition is a new heated pool. It is situated close to the main chalets. 

                                 It’s elevation gives panoramic views of the valley and mountains. 

                         A 10m bank of solar panels heat the pool giving all year round swimming.

A short family hike meanders up the mountain. Apart from many varieties of tortoise there

are frequent sightings of his arch rival, the hare.


Small shy game can also be seen. The bush is untouched, and boasts the fascinating and

colourful fynbos, cacti and succulents. This is also an attraction for many colourful birds.
