Lekker stil en rustig.

Netjiese verblyf op 'n lekker stil plaas in die Kalahari.

Goed geleë naby Kgalagadi. Goed ingerig met lekker plaasatmosfeer.

Baie vriendelik ontvang. Baie redelike prys vir die private huis. Stil en rustig en binne 30 minute se ry vanaf Kgalagadi. Huis is baie privaat en netjies met alles wat jy nodig het.

Excellent value for money.

Our group of 12 SanParks Honorary Rangers: West Coast Region were able to meet and get together at Kalahari Trails in comfort before moving on into more remote regions of the Kgalagadi Transfrontier Park! This was a brilliant stopover for us. We had the farmhouse to ourselves which gave us the opportunity to sort out the logistics of the group. The location is excellent for a bush camp group going into the Kgalagadi Transfrontier Park (25 kms from the entrance) and proved to save valuable travelling time.

The cottage was okay.

Needs maintenance, especially on the plumbing side. Toilet that leaks, etc. Location is fantastic and there is plenty of game on the farm and a drinking hole in front of the cottage.

Die cottage was heel OK.

Kort 'n bietjie onderhoud, veral aan die loodgieterskant. Toilet wat lek ens. Ligging is fantasties en daar is baie wild op die plaas en 'n drinkgat voor die cottage.

Beautiful nature with red sand dunes where you can just relax!

I slept there for 2 nights. Fenced camping area and very neat. Every camping spot has a little roof. Braai facilities at every camping spot. The red dunes are right behind you. Was wonderful to just sleep over and experience the beautiful sunrise and sunset. It's safe. I feel like the area where you wash your dishes and the bathrooms need upgrading. Luckily we had warm water showers every night. The new manager, Henning, is very friendly and helpful and said that he'd work on things son. The meerkats are so cute. It's a good place to stay over on your way to the Kgalagadi.

Pragtige natuur met rooi duine en rustige kamp waar ek kon ontspan na 'n lang pad vanaf Somerset-Wes!

Ek het twee aande oornag. Afgekampte kamparea, veilig en baie netjies. Elke staanplek het 'n afdak vir skaduwee. Braaigeriewe per staanplek. Die rooi duine is sommer direk agter die kamparea. Was wonderlik om net te kon rondstap, die stilte inneem en die asemrowende sonsopkoms en sonsondergang afneem, wat wonderlik was. Dis veilig! Die enigste deel van my verblyf wat ek voel wel aandag kort, is die opwasarea en badkamers kort opgradering. Tog was daar elke aand lekker warm water om te stort. Henning is 'n nuwe bestuurder, vriendelik en behulpsaam en het gesê dat daar in die nabye toekoms aandag gegee gaan word aan die bogenoemde probleme. Stokkies meerkatte tog te oulik. Kosbaar om hulle te kon dophou. Ek dink dis 'n baie goeie oornagplek voordat jy die Kgalagadi ingaan.

Pleasant but ablutions need attention.

A bit run down. Seems they are trying to upgrade. Very convenient to stay over before visiting the Kgalagadi Park.

Baie goeie oorslaapplek op pad Kgalagadi toe.

Vriendelike personeel wat ons ontvang het, behulpsaam met alles. Ons kon rustig braaivleis maak, alle kombuisgeriewe was daar. Daar was verskillende ekskursiemoontlikhede om die bonus van die verblyf verder te geniet: die stokstertmeerkatte! Netjiese oorblyplek aan te beveel in die hartjie van die Kalahari!

Meerkat fun on a beautiful farm.

The farm is beautiful and it was a wonderful experience to do the walk on the dunes with Eben and Katrina. We learned to much! My husband and I walked on farm and we were not always sure where we were. Pity that there are no official trails as it is a beautiful farm and well planned trails could add to the value to this property. Eben and Katrina also took us for a night which was fun and very cold! Of course experiencing the meerkats is very special en fun.

Swak.

Dis soos 'n jeugherberg, met heelwat geraas a.g.v. van argitektuur. Geriewe basies. As jy jonk is, is dit miskien aanvaarbaar.

Very reasonably priced accommodation. The highlight was meeting Prof Anne and the meerkats and to spend time photographing the meerkats.

Staying on the premises enabled me to spend the last and first light of day to photograph the meerkats.

Too expensive for what you get.

Towels and sheets clean and new, very nice hot water, staff friendly, that's the positive side. House outside, bathrooms, tiles, kitchenware, cutlery, beds, mattresses and braai facilities need al lot of maintenance, that's the negative side.

Te duur vir dit wat jy kry.

Handdoeke en lakens skoon en nuut, baie lekker warm water, personeel vriendelik, dit is die positiewe kant. Huis buite, badkamers, teëls, kombuis, eetgerei, beddens, matrasse en braaigeriewe kort 'n hele oordoen, dit is die negatiewe kant.

Very nice, the facilities have great potential, a bit neglected.

Nice overnight spot to hit the Kgalaghadi in the day. The Red Dune Route and the Meerkat Sanctuary is a must. So much potential, customer service is could be better and facilities are neglected. But we will be back. Beautiful area and very peaceful.

Baie lekker, fasiliteite het groot potensiaal, bietjie verwaarloos.

Lekker oornagplek om vroegdag by die Kgalaghadi te kan ingaan. Die Red Dune Route en die Meerkat Sanctuary is 'n moet. Daar is baie potensiaal, kliëntediens is bietjie nagelaat en die fasiliteite is verwaarloos. Tog sal ons weer teruggaan. Omgewing is ONGELOOFLIK mooi en RUSTIG.

Countryside atmosphere.

Very interesting experience to see the meerkats in their own space.

Plattelandse atmosfeer.

Baie interessante belewenis om die meerkatte te kon sien in hul omgewing.
