... like African Rondavel huts. We then headed back towards Graskop and stopped off at a lovely viewpoint on the river, which was also home to the South African bush kitchen. 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.

    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.
