Took the family on the tractor ride. Wife was sceptical when I described it, but she loved it. We went up on a cold day, but we wrapped up and they had blankets. We also did the braai experience after the trip which was great.

What a magical spot. You do not feel like you're in South Africa when staying over at this piece of heaven. So tranquil and beautiful. Words can't explain so breathtakingly stunning it is. The tractor ride was a fun, adventurous bonus I will stay over...More

Sadly the devastating veld fires destroyed all the proteas and it will take at least 7 years before they regenerate. The tractor ride is fun and the views are truly magnificent. I recommend the potjie lunch. Generous wholesome food. The best vetkoek ever.

This was our second attempt as the first one, last year, had to be cancelled because of the rain so we were really looking forward to the ride. Wonderful views from the top and a lovely day!
