Nice place for fishing but Giant Heron house is far from what the photo's show.

Photo's on the website must have been taken a very long time ago.

Heerlik ontspannend en privaat. Ideale wegbreek uit die stad se gewoel en geraas.

Ons kon ongelukkig net die Sondagnag oorslaap. Hulle het Sondagnag by my woning ingebreek en ons moes Maandag inderhaas terugkeer. Ek het met Bernally gerëel om die oorblywende dae en 2 nagte later in die jaar te kom gebruik. Hy het ingestem. Ek sal jou vroegtydig laat weet wanneer. Dankie vir jou professionele diens.

Wonderfully relaxing and private. Ideal getaway from the city's hustle and bustle.

Unfortunately we could only sleep over the Sunday night. They broke into my residence on Sunday night and we had to return in a hurry on Monday. I arranged with Bernally to come and use the remaining days and 2 nights later in the year. He agreed. I will let you know in advance when. Thank you for your professional service.

It was more like haven on earth. The peace, the birds.

I am coming from the city, where there are taxis, buses and lot of noise. So staying at a farm was like a dream come true.

Excellent place to go fishing and not expensive. Would visit again, can be upgraded a bit and a microwave would be helpful.

Pad is vol modder, amper vasgesit. Dam nie gebruikersvriendelik nie. Beloftes nie nagekom.

Met ons aankoms moes ek 3 maal skakel om by die hek ingelaat te word. Die pad was vol modder na die reën, en my voertuig het amper vasgesit. Die pad word nie onderhou nie. Ek het betaal vir hout om 'n vuur te maak, wat belowe was om af te lewer, wat nooit gebeur het nie. Die meubels is verwaarloos, gloeilampe was nie werkend nie, gas was klaar na een ketel water gekook was. Die dam was nie heeltemal toeganklik vir visvang nie, aangesien daar dooie bome en stompe was wat verhinder het om in te gooi. Die dekke wat aangebring is om op te loop was gehawend, geen planke meer nie. Dus, my beskeie opinie is dat daar daadwerklik aandag geskenk moet word aan al die fasette van die oord. Ek sal beslis nie weer daar gaan kamp nie.

Road is full of mud, almost stuck. Dam not user friendly. Promises not kept.

When we arrived I had to call 3 times to be let in at the gate. The road was full of mud after the rain, and my vehicle almost got stuck. The road is not maintained. I paid for wood to make a fire, which was promised to be delivered, which never happened. The furniture was neglected, light bulbs were not working, gas was finished after one kettle of water had been boiled. The pond was not completely accessible for fishing as there were dead trees and logs preventing casting. The decks that had been installed to walk on were battered, no planks left. So, my humble opinion is that real attention should be paid to all the facets of the resort. I will definitely not be camping there again.

Baie rustige omgewing, naby alles, maar tog uit die stad uit. Lekker plek om die siel te herlaai.

Lekker om te gaan stap op na die damme toe en 'n glasie sjampanje te geniet en rustig te wees.

Heerlike plekkie vir 'n naweek om weg te kom! Die eienaar is vreeslik behulpsaam en ons mooi gehelp. Dis vreeslik mooi en stil. Twee dammetjies het water gehad en staproetes is baie oulik. Ons het gekamp en alles gehad wat nodig is.

Netjies en skoon.

Die verblyf was netjies en skoon, maar vir visvangdoeleindes sal ek beslis nie die plek aanbeveel nie. Die damme is almal leeg. Daar was net 1 met water en hy was so vlak dat jy die modder daar in kon sien. Daar was iemand ook daar wat sê hierdie damme het al 4 jaar terug opgedroog. Die plek is baie verwaarloos. Staan plekkies langs die dam wat wel water het was netjies en skoon.

Neat and clean.

The accommodation was neat and clean, but for fishing purposes I would definitely not recommend the place. The ponds are all empty. There was only 1 with water and it was so shallow you could see the mud in there. There was also someone there who said that these ponds had dried up 4 years ago. The place is very neglected. Standing places next to the dam that do have water were neat and clean.

Lekker vir 'n kort goedkoop wegbreek.

Alhoewel dit baie basies is, was dit skoon, en veilig met wagte wat rondloop. Klein goedjies ontbreek soos glase en die hut was redelik warm so n waaier sal handig wees, maar andersins sal ek graag terug gaan, veral as die dam vol is.

Nice for a short cheap getaway.

Although very basic, it was clean and safe with guards walking around. Little things are missing like glasses and the cabin is quite hot so a fan will be handy, but otherwise I would love to go back, especially if the dam is full.

Rustic charm.

Ongelooflike rustige en mooi area, kampeerplekke is reg op die damwal. Kon my hondjie saamvat en dit was so lekker om saam met haar op die plaas te kon rondstap. Eienaar het my ook 'n gratis opgradering na 'n ander huisie gegee omdat ander kampeerders eers 2 dae later gekom het. Baie dankie!

Dit was 'n lekker wegbreek van die stad se lawaai en rumoer.

Die area en verblyf was rustig en lekker. Net een negatief was dat die kussings 'n bietjie aan die pap kant was en dit het ons slaap so 'n bietjie bederf, maar anders was daar geen klagtes nie.

Was lekker om 'n nuwe ervaring te kon hê met die houthuisie. Dis regtig net die basiese goed. Nie vir mense wat gewoond is an luukse goed nie. Houthuisies kort net bietjie aandag van die eienaar. Sal enige tyd weer teruggaan.

It was so nice!

Despite the rain we had a lovely stay. The cabin was spacious and the people were hospitable.

Lekker en lekker koud.

Bernard was 'n goeie gasheer. Hy was behulpsaam en vriendelik. Ek het koud gekry in die fisherman's cottage want dit is swak geïsoleer, maar hy het vinnig te hulpe gekom. Die braai buite was vuil en het geruik na ou vis wat nie lekker was nie, dit en die koue was al wat my gepla het. Verder sal ek weer daarnatoe gaan vir 'n kuier.

Nice and cold.

Bernard was a great host. He was helpful and friendly. I got cold in the fisherman's cottage because it is poorly insulated, but he quickly came to the rescue. The barbecue outside was dirty and smelled of old fish which was not good, that and the cold was all that bothered me. Furthermore, I will go there again for a visit.

Wow we really had a good time!

Well I arrived with my partner and was greeted by the owner. He said since we are the only campers for the next 2 nights he would rather put us up in a chalet at the same price as camping. And I must say the cottage was great. It had a nice fireplace, bathroom was nice and kitchen. All in all it was really nice, the main dam is very low but the other 3 smaller dams were full and the fishing was awesome. So all i have to say to Bernard the owner thank you for the super service and a great weekend!

Lekker saam met familie gekuier, maar die oord was erg verwaarloos en teleurstellend.

Hierdie oord is erg verwaarloos en die webtuiste foto's is baie misleidend. Die behuising is swak toegerus en nie op standaard nie. Die plek was wel netjies en skoon en daar was warm water. Die damme wat gewys word bestaan nie meer nie, dit is water poele en dus nie bevredigend nie. Ek sou nie hierdie oord meer aanbeveel nie. Baie teleurstellende ondervinding.

We had a great time with the family, but the resort is rundown and disappointing.

This resort is really neglected the pics on the website are really misleading. The units are not well equipped and not up to standard. But the place was clean and neat and hot water was available. The dams in the pics don't exist anymore, it's just little puddles of water, not satisfying at all. I don't recommend this place. What a disappointement.

Very disappointing!

Got there early at 10 am as arranged, went in and announced our arrival and were told by a guy that he would let us in at the gate to follow him down. And so we waited about 10 minutes only to see him climb into a vehicle and drive away without us. We eventually were told by another guest that the gate was unlocked so we let ourselves in and drove down to where we thought the cabins might be. After about another hour or so we eventually settled down into a cabin. Shortly thereafter the guy smashed into a tree about 4 meters away from our car so we quickly moved our vehicle into safety. What a waste of time, no fish biting in the "big dam" the entire time, apparently this dam was completely dried up not so long ago and the only thing in the dam was thousands of tadpoles and birds. The other dams were ponds, one cast with our fly fishing rod and you're on the other side. For the serious fisherman, don't waste your time here! The pictures on the site are not recent and no longer paint a true picture of this place and we have taken several just in case you would like to see. Broken pathways and muddy paths. Good for spending time with the kids/grandkids, canoeing and birdwatching or canned fishing in the ponds/small streams, ablutions were clean and cabins ok. First and last time to this place. Please update to recent pictures and please inform people that the main dam suffered a severe catastrophe in the drought period and was completely emptied out! Thus not letting people believe that you cast far into the dam and catch big fish.

Family with teenagers

Uiters teleurstellend en nie die geld werd nie.

Ek dink nie die plek is die geld werd wat ek betaal het nie, die eienaar/gasheer was duidelik aangeklam en het van drank gestink toe ons net na 16:00 daar aangekom het. Ek het hom gelukkig die oggend gebel en hy het toe nie eers van ons bespreking geweet nie. Ons is in die Kingfisher Chalet ingesit en nie die Giant Heron soos bespreek nie, seker nie 'n probleem nie behalwe dat my tienerdogter en -seun 'n dubbelbed moes deel. Geriewe is maar primitief, maar het darem warm water gehad en die beddegoed het skoon gelyk. Ek dink daar moet melding gemaak word dat die plaas grens aan 'n informele nedersetting met baie mense wat teen die grensdraad rondbeweeg, dit maak mens onrustig wanneer die son eers gesak het.

Extremely disappointing and not worth the money.

I don't think the place is worth the money I paid, the owner/host was clearly wet and reeked of booze when we got there just after 4pm. Luckily I called him in the morning and he didn't even know about our discussion then. We were put in the Kingfisher Chalet and not the Giant Heron as booked, probably not a problem except that my teenage daughter and son had to share a double bed. Amenities are primitive, but at least there was hot water and the bedding looked clean. I think it should be mentioned that the farm borders an informal settlement with many people moving around against the boundary wire, it makes you restless once the sun has gone down.

The area/ hut was in order and surroundings great.

Not a pleasant stay - started off unpleasant but facilities are good.
