    We stayed here for two days but one day more would have been better. Absolutely georgeous valley, great for walks between lots of animals. Nature at its best. The rondavels are great with a very good douche and lovely views. Breakfast and dinner round the campfire is simple but nice and very cosy. Stat here for two or three days you will love it.

    Nice hostel in the middle of the Milwane National Park. They prepare very good dinner every day, which you can join. They also allowed big travel group, which can be quite noisy.

    Leuk verblijf in de rondavel gehad, ziet er beter uit dan op de foto's! Ideaal dat we rond het kampvuur mee konden dineren voor een leuk prijsje. Mooie locatie en route er naar toe!

    We hadden een tweepersoonskamer geboekt in het hoofdgebouw. Volgens hostelwrld was er niets anders vrij. Toen we aankwamen vroeg ik of er toch een Rondavel vrij was. Die waren allen geboekt volgens de dame die de incheck deed. We praten nog wat door en we werden even later door een mannelijke collega begeleid naar onze slaapplek. Dat bleek een Rondavel te zijn. Naast die van ons was er die nacht nog 1 niet bezet. Apart! Maar in ons geval prima. Kamers in het gebouw liggen niet gunstig tov geluid
