Accommodation & facilities & meals...

About the house:

We have 2 dorm rooms (sleeps 4 each), as well as a cottage (sleeps 6). We always keep boys & girls in different dorms!!! 

There is one inside bathroom equipped with a bath, shower, basin & toilet. We also have 3 outside bathrooms with toilets, basins and showers, and 1 outside shower all with hot water!

Laundry will be done every Thursday, unless otherwise specified! Please use the laundry bags provided & place it in the laundry area we have shown you!

Everyone is free to use this area as they wish! We also have selected books, board games & cards at the bookshelf.

We encourage all to have fun whilst visiting us! So please make use of the front garden where the dogs are to relax, read a book or play with the pups! They love attention! The inside garden is where we will have our bonfires, braais and have lots of fun! There is a dart board as well as a pool table! You are welcome to use it! If you would like to explore the other outside areas of the house, please let us know! Do not wander off into the bush, as it’s not safe to do so! If you want to go for a jog, ask us which route to take for your own safety!

This is our HONESTY BAR! Please use the book to write your name and whatever you take from the bar!


Three meals are provided on a daily basis, with a refreshment break between work in the morning. Meals will either be served at the facility itself or taken as a pre-packed serving, depending on planned or as result of unscheduled activities. Vegetarians and other dietary requirements can be catered for, if notified in advance. Meals will also be available ,if you want to stay in over weekends (self preparation)!

There are no facilities to service Kosher or Halaal requirements but the supply of such meals can be serviced at extra cost, request and availability.

We strive to make traditional South African dishes for you!
