      What a wonderful rustic experience. Got to reception and everything was ready for us. We're staying in one of the annexes. Whole place to ourselves. Receptionist say: no phone, no TV, no room service. GREAT!!! The room was lovely. Great old bath, wall papered walls, lovely linen. Even put heater on for us.

      Restaurant was wonderful and romantic. Food was great. Will check out breakfast soon.

      This is an experience everyone must try.

      ... If you aren’t big on a last minute rush, and have a TOG bag you definitely want to catch an earlier bus that probably gets in at 4 or 4:30 am. Which means you would have to leave Durban at 2:30 or 3 am. If you are starting the race in Durban, the smart thing to do might be to spend the night in PZ after the race and come back to Durban after. Need to look into this for next year.

Serving traditional food, and the setting was stunning. After this brief stop for Boerewors, pap and beer, we then went to the spectacular 48 metre Berlin Falls. We then tried once again to see God's ...

I have been warned that the bars on my bedroom windows are good and 43 deadlocks on each door will keep us safe. Best of all the street has its own guard! I have also been warned that I will be woken by the neighbours Maids family ( who apparently have very loud voices and start ...

      ... of the boat would go way up and then smash down, up and down, smashing, turning, water hitting you in the was the craziest boat ride of my life. Even the big shots on the boat said it was some of the worst conditions they'd seen. And why on earth am I on this damn thing...

      The next day i decided to keep on keepin on, so i walked across town to the mini bus stand where i got a bus to another mini bus stand where i got a bus to the border called Plum Tree. The bus took us all the way across the border into Botswana. From there i caught a bus to Francistown. This ...
