Getaway (South Africa) - - TRAVEL -

Cot­tages There are five of these of vary­ing size, spaced fairly close to­gether. They have wood stoves so in win­ter they’re quite cosy. If you’re a cou­ple, the two sin­gle cot­tages are nicest. Not all have their own bath­room; how­ever, the com­mu­nal show­ers are good. All have braai fa­cil­i­ties, and the cot­tages run on so­lar power and gas. From R580 a night for Gecko (sleeps two). Camp­ing There are five sites (max­i­mum six peo­ple each), re­ally nicely set out, al­low­ing some pri­vacy. All have their own braai spot, plus they share a kitchen. R170 a night per site. Tap­fontein This bush­camp has four Wendy houses with ve­ran­das, set up on a hill, and is charm­ing but very ba­sic. There’s no elec­tric­ity and the bath­room is com­mu­nal (but it does have hot wa­ter and so­lar lights). It can only be reached by 4x4, hik­ing or bi­cy­cle. R300 pp (sleeps two each).There is a daily con­ser­va­tion fee of R40 pp for all overnight guests. capena­
