Baie lekker, stil plek met kol-kol warmbad by elke huis en nog 2 swembaddens.

Jeff, die eienaars is baie vriendelik, en die plek is baie skoon en niemand pla mekaar nie.

Great value for money break with 5 star service from our host Jeff. Quiet and safe.

We stayed 2 nights in chalet at Travelling Tortoise. Loved our stay. Quiet at night with wide open views. The new addition of a private wood fired hot tub was one of our highlights. The other chalets had guests, but you do not see or hear anyone. Jeff was always around yet not in your face. We will be back and certainly recommend the Travelling Tortoise.

The most beautiful view and setting. Very peaceful with everything one would possible want for convenience. No TV nor radio, lots of books to read and just relax after the trail run and then to enjoy a steaming hot Jacuzzi outside to top the wonderful stay.

Great venue, service and value for money. The owner is an author of short stories and the developer of the property. Well done Jeff!

Myself, my husband and son of 8 visited in April. Had the best time. Nothing but peace and quiet. Just nature. What a spectacular view. The unit was very cosy. The unit has everything you need. Beautiful view from the bedroom as well. The wood-fired tub was a great added bonus. Thank you Jeff for making us feel so welcome! We will hopefully be back soon.

Beeldskone omgewing, rustige atmosfeer.

So stukkie hemel net buite De Rust. Jeff was hulpvaardig en vriendelik. Hy het ons baie welkom laat voel. Verblyf was uitstekend met pragtige uitsigte oor die berge en 'n stoep om die sonsondergang te geniet. Huis was goed ingerig en mooi onderhou. Hoogtepunt was die private warmbad lang die huisie asook die verhitte swembad. Daar is 'n oulike speelpark vir die kinders en mooi plaaspaaie om te gaan wandel. Ons sal altyd met lof van The Travelling Tortoise praat.

Such a piece of heaven just outside De Rust. Jeff was helpful and friendly. He made us feel very welcome. Accommodation was excellent with beautiful views of the mountains and a veranda to enjoy the sunset. House was well furnished and well maintained. The highlight was the private hot tub along the cottage as well as the heated swimming pool. There is a cute play park for the children and nice farm roads to go for a walk. We will always speak highly of The Traveling Tortoise.

Pragtige plek. Ons was na ses nagte se verblyf, nog nie gereed om te vertrek nie. Kon gerus maar nog gebly het. Dit was waarlik 'n heerlike ervaring om by Travelling Tortoise te kuier.

Van die uitsig vanaf die balkon, en feitlik elke vertrek, kan mens nooit genoeg kry nie. Dit bly asemrowend. Die heerlike sonverhitte swembad, met dieselfde uitsig as van chalet af, was werklik 'n onverwagte bonus. Ons was ook bevoorreg om boeke, geskryf deur Jeff Glazier (die eienaar) te koop, wat hy vir ons geteken het - lekker verrassing om die skrywer te ontmoet. Ons sal enige tyd weer by Travelling Tortoise gaan woon, wat ook baie sentraal geleë is na Meiringspoort, Swartbergpas, Prins Albert en alles in, en om Oudtshoorn. Nege uit 10 vir hierdie vakansieplek. Dankie, heerlik gewees.

Beautiful place. We were not ready to leave after six nights' stay. Could have stayed longer. It was truly a delightful experience visiting Traveling Tortoise.

One can never get enough of the view from the balcony, and practically every room. It remains breathtaking. The lovely solar heated swimming pool, with the same view as from the chalet, was a real unexpected bonus. We were also privileged to buy books written by Jeff Glazier (the owner) which he signed for us - nice surprise to meet the author. We would stay at Traveling Tortoise again anytime, which is also very centrally located to Meiringspoort, Swartberg Pass, Prince Albert and everything in and around Oudtshoorn. Nine out of 10 for this holiday spot. Thank you, it was great.

If you need peace and quite, go here. A wonderful place.

Beautiful views, a pleasant hut with all the things you need and not more. Good service from the host. I wish I stayed longer.

It's the closest experience to nature you will ever experience.

When the mountains and the stars meet and they allow you into their space to show off their beauty. The swimming pool was a treat to cool you from the summer heat. An all-round holistic experience.

Rustig en kalm vir die siel. Hier kan die jy die sterre sien in die nag.

Vroegoggend sal jy wilde hase sien. En die 2 swembaddens klaar gereed vir uitspan en genoeg vir kinders om hulself ook besig te hou. Daar is geen ding wat die uitsig van die huise kan afsteek nie. En De Rust-dorp is nie te ver nie.

One of the best locations to unwind and get away from the day-to-day buzz. A true gem!

Upon arrival, we were greeted by a very friendly host, Jeff. The cabin was clean, neat and everything was easy to find. Once you walk out onto the patio the view will take your breath away. Get ready to fall in love with a colorful sunset. Young or old, you will feel rejuvenated after a few days here, especially after a soak in the outdoor Jacuzzi.

Dit was lekker om na 'n uitdagende rit deur die Karoo by hierdie huisvesting te arriveer. Ons was aangenaam verras deur die aandag wat gegee is aan elemente om die kleiner geslag te vermaak en sal beslis ons kleinkinders daarna toe neem. Die eenheid, Hares Lair, was baie netjies en goed toegerus.

Baie kreatiewe verblyf opsies! Baie stil en rustig.

Die huisies het almal 'n tema met 'n storie, alles rondom haas en skilpad en jakkals, wat dit baie interessant maak. Dis ook uitstekend toegerus. Alles werk met sonkrag en gas, so hulle is "off-grid" wat elektrisiteit gebruik betref. Die fasiliteite is uitstekend. Daar is 2 swembaddens, een selfs met sonkrag verhit. Daar is ook 'n lieflike speelpark vir kinders. Dis 'n fantastiese plek om stilte en rustigheid te geniet. Ons sal beslis weer gaan en beveel dit openhartig aan.

The houses all have a theme with a story, all around rabbit and turtle and fox, which makes it very interesting. It's also excellently equipped. Everything runs on solar power and gas, so they are "off-grid" in terms of electricity use. The facilities are excellent. There are 2 swimming pools, one even solar heated. There is also a lovely play park for children. It's a fantastic place to enjoy peace and quiet. We would definitely go again and wholeheartedly recommend it.

A stunning stay in the heart of the Karoo!

My husband and I had a marvellous time at the Travelling Tortoise. We loved the wooden houses, the details and the uniqueness of the place (each house is different). The fact that the resort is eco -friendly made it even more enjoyable. The views of the farm lands and the mountains are exquisite (especially from the jacuzzi). At night the stars show off in abundance! The peace and quiet was much needed and it is the perfect place for a romantic getaway or a child friendly holiday or even a stay with friends! Thank you to Jeff for being a wonderful host, we will certainly be back.

Wat 'n juweel. Die plekkie is aards en knus in die skoot van die Swart- en die Kammanassieberge se veldprag.

Ons het in een van Jeff (eienaar) se aardse houthuisies tuisgegaan waar ons ook toegang tot 'n vuurbad gehad het. Daar is baie moeite gedoen met die uitleg van die huisies en die kreatiewe aanslag val mens dadelik op. Ons sal beslis weer terugkeer en hierdie keer selfs langer bly. Geluk aan Jeff met 'n pragtige plek.

Excellent.

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay in the Hare's Lair. In contrast to the bunny-hole-in-the-ground concept, the unit is an absolute fairytale at night, with the chimney keeping the cold at bay and ensuring a cosy and relaxed atmosphere. We have found our favourite place! The road was great, we drove with a small Kia Picanto and had no issues at all!

Wonderful views and a unique experience.

We had such fun at the Travelling Tortoise on our honeymoon! This place is a must for those who like spending time in nature in a relaxed, off-the-grid setting. The Travelling Tortoise offers many different and unique experiences that are a must on any trip. We had so much fun in the hot tub and exploring the farm in the morning. We will be back for more.

Stil en baie oulik.

Ons het in The Hare's Lair gebly. Hobbit-huisie so lang persone moet maar buk met die in- en uitloop. Huisie is baie netjies met alle benodighede voorsien. Buitebraai en klein kaggel binne wat die huisie vinnig warm maak. Die eienaar Jeff het ons ingewag en begelei deur die huis. Baie vriendelik en hulpvaardig.

We stayed in The Hare's Lair. Hobbit house so tall people have to stoop when entering and exiting. The house is very tidy with all necessities provided. Outdoor grill and small fireplace inside that warms the house quickly. The owner Jeff welcomed us and guided us through the house. Very friendly and helpful.

Rus en vrede in die natuur, ontspannende pragtige uitsigte.

Wat 'n wonderlike ervaring was dit vir ons as egpaar.' n Klein wegbreek wat 'n groot verskil maak. Ons het die netjiese en skoon chalet waardeer met die mooiste uitsig op die berge en valleie. Jeff is 'n fantastiese gasheer! Ons het lekker in die warmbad ontspan en van al ons stres vergeet. Ons sal beslis weer kom kuier!

Was 'n nagmerrie met onbeskofte gasheer. Ons was so getraumatiseerd en in skok oor sy behandeling. Hy het geen hulp aangebied nie.

Gasheer het ons in die pad weggewys en nie op terrein toegelaat met ons Tiguan nie, omdat dit nie 'n "4x4" was nie. Ons voertuig is 'n "all wheel drive" en ons het deur die Baviaanskloof gereis tot daar. Enigste opsie aangebied is dat ons, twee senior burgers die berg moet uitklim met ons bagasie. Geen ander opsie is aangebied nie. Ons was aangesê om in die dorp te gaan akkommodasie te soek. Hy het ons akkommodasie gekanselleer. Hoe bestuur jy 'n 4x4 terrein en het nie 'n 4x4 voertuig nie?

Was a nightmare with rude host. We were so traumatized and in shock about his treatment. He offered no help.

Host turned us away in the road and not allowed on site with our Tiguan, because it was not a "4x4". Our vehicle is an "all wheel drive" and we traveled through the Baviaanskloof to get there. Only option offered is that we, two senior citizens have to climb the mountain with our luggage. No other option was offered. We were told to go into town and look for accommodation. He canceled our accommodation. How do you manage a 4x4 terrain and don't have a 4x4 vehicle?

Rustig en goed vir die siel.

Traveling Tortoise is goed geleë naby De Rust, maar ver genoeg om te voel asof mens werklik ’n wegbreek geniet. Ons was in die Geometric en ons het rustige sonserondergange geniet in die warmwaterbad. Die swembad is ook lieflik en baie waardeer in Desember. Die hut is eenvoudig, maar het alles wat jy nodig het en voel so spesiaal.
