                              We stayed in Dassie 1 and it was PERFECT. We wanted for nothing. Piping hot shower with a view - birds checking you out through the sliding door! We sat around the fire in the fire pit and braaied and talked and checked out the stars until late. We so enjoyed a visit from a very brave robin who enjoyed our crumbs and the same from a little field mouse (I think - some type of mouse) who dashed out from the bushes to pick up a chip we'd dropped. We took a walk up a path and discovered Black Eagle Camp - cannot WAIT to come back with the kids and experience that - what an adventure!We wish we...

                              What a gem did we find in Kleinrivier. Unexpected luxury in a rustic environment. For tired city souls this is as good as it gets. Quiet, peaceful, only natural sounds, watching the sun colour the cliffs. The cottage with its shower with a view was a lovely surprise. Thanks Dion for your friendliness. Tertius and Christa

                              We spent two nights in one of the Dassiekrans chalets. It was a beautiful secluded setting and the chalet was lovely and modern. There are a number of great hiking trails - though we only tried one - and an awesome rock pool, filled by a spring, that is perfect for a dip on a hot summer's day.As birders we were impressed by the array of forest species that we could spot from the balcony. We were even treated to some cracking views of a Knysna woodpecker! Well worth a visit.
