Fire hits Western Cape's Overberg...

(Just in case anybody is traveling to this area soon, I was just e-mailed this report)

THE Western Cape's Overberg region has been hit by a devastating fire this week.
One damaged property was Grootbos' new Forest Lodge near Gansbaai. The main
building and three cottages burnt down, while the property's Garden Lodge
escaped with minor damages.
Grootbos has decided to close its operations until February 25 as dust, soot and
smell may negatively affect the Grootbos experience for guests. The Forest Lodge
will be rebuilt and expectations are that it will be open for the new season.
Assistance can be provided to find alternative arrangements in the deKelders
area at three luxury guest houses: Cliff, Crayfish and Whalesong Lodge. The
central reservation will be located at Grootbos.
