Didn't see another soul for three days. Lovely cottage with everything you could possibly need. No need to go anywhere as to stay at the cottage was a pleasure.

Loved to be on our own, experience the reserve on our own, night sounds at the cottage and game drive. Hosts are such nice people.

Away from all the business and noise of the city. Only surrounded by nature. You get awakend by the birds , if you take an early morning walk you see the most beautiful sunrise and get greeted by some koedoes , rooibuck and giraffs on your way to the top of the mountain!!!!
