Fodor's Review

This rest camp, along a lovely, meandering stretch of river, is divided into two sections (north and south) and includes a variety of accommodation options, ranging from cottages and cabins to huts and campsites. The southern portion has several family cottages that sleep up to six, as well as log cabins and forest huts, both of which sleep up to four. The log cabins are prettier than the cottages, but both are bright and pleasant with separate bedrooms, kitchens, bathrooms, and balconies. The forest huts are smaller but cute. Campsites, some of which directly overlook the river, are set on a wide lawn under trees. The much smaller northern section has a few grassy campsites right on the river and a dozen rondavels (round huts) and is much more secluded. Two of the rondavels don't have their own bathrooms, but the communal bathroom areas for the campsite are clean and adequate.
