Whether you are looking for a luxurious holiday or fun-filled adventure, you are sure to have a memorable stay in this beautiful part of the country.

Chalets are elegantly decorated and equipped with air-conditioners with a heating option. All the bedside tables and headboards are made from a combination of local wood species found in the area, like Yellow Wood, Oak, Sneeze Wood, and Black Wood. The Sneeze Wood chandeliers found throughout the chalets and in the Lapa are made out of old fence posts that were in use a few years ago, and are termite prufe! Bathrooms are en suite and have indoor and outdoor showers to suit your needs. There are also procupine quills lamp shades found in the bathrooms and the lapa which were handmade by the owner.

The working citrus farm on the property is called "Miskruier" (Afrikaans for Dung Beetle), and it was deliberately named this by Mr. HHJ Potgieter, 12 years ago when he bought the property. He wanted to help save the Miskruier, a flightless dung beetle, from extinction. As well as building five chalets with a lapa overlooking the Zuurberg Mountains, he decided to build a 50 X 50 m enclosure for the protection of these dung beetles. 150 cubes of soft sand were offloaded into the enclosure to assist dung beetle burying activities. The conservation project's purpose was to breed Circellium bacchus dung beetles and reintroduce them back into nature, and also to create an awareness of conservation outside of a National Park.

In this unique area there is much to see and experience.

Activities cater for both the adventure seeker and relaxer and a complete file of all the activities can be viewed at the reception area.
