              Hi We travelled from Cape Town on a hot day and by the time the bakkie pulled in to Elalini I was ready for some shade, peace and I found it in our room . The cleanliness of the rooms and bathrooms were gratifying and we were sorry to leave next morning to continue our travels east. We will explore more next time . The hospitality was gentle and gracious and not invasive and everyone felt free to enjoy .
