              The place was serenely beautiful, lovely, clean and had all the equipment and utensils that one needs. I just could not get any hot water.

              Ida's cottage (and the entire property) is quiet and in nature; we just spent 1 night and was out for guided birding with Samson Mulaudzi, so didn't have much time at the venue itself. Clean, tidy and all you can hope for. Central point from where to explore the area. We will gladly return.
