This was an adventure worth the while. People were friendly and helpful. Scenery beautiful despite the felt fires that destroyed all the protea vegetation. The potjie kos meal is a definite must.

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.

Travelling up to 2000m with the tractor was a good way to do it. Interesting to see the landscape especially where fire had swept through. The remains of the Proteas were in fact beautiful. At the top great views. A little stop with liqueur and...More

The tractor trip is well worth the trip. Treat yourself to a potjiekos lunch, set in the unspoilt forest. Good old traditional South African fare cooked on the fires. Vetkoek and freshly baked bread and preserves for starters. Other than the selection of potjies there's...More
