It may possibly be the worst place on the planet. Crappy owner Jack who has no clue how to deal with people, substandard rooms...not to say the least. Water your garden for goodness sake. I wouldnt even send my worst enemy here...no wonder your place is in shambles

I found this lodge in the Cradle of Humankind. The host and hostess, Jack and Karen were extremely helpful and all the staff very polite. The food was exceptionally good and very reasonable prices. I look forward to visiting again in the not too distant future.
