A perfect weekend getaway from the hectic city pace. I arrived with bells, whistles and hooters going off in my head and left at ease, peaceful and calm. For the tourist and traveller a fantastic look at the African landscape with large open spaces, majestic mountain backdrops, the bushveld and the sun with peace and calm you never realised existed.
