      Great picnic spot. The children enjoy every minute. The river is very popular. Clean & well maintained. Impressed that the resort recovered so fast after the floods. Keep up the good work guys

      Im a person who loves to cook.. Their snappy chef stoves and cook ware were the best. Chalet A had everything we needed. Have been to a few places from Langebaan to Witsand but they take the 6 ✴️ rating. Thank you for a good time. Staff also very helpful and friendly ❤️❤️

      Water is alot more shallow, probably as a result of the heavy rains we had, but goodness me that river is amazing and I had the time of my life, in fact I booked again on the same I left 😀
