    A very warm welcome in the 'boeren' farmers house. Outside nice sitting rooms. The rooms are old fashioned. The beds perfect. The food is good and the dinner you have to order before. The swimmingpool is from a good quality.

    Hi there my partner and I are staying with you for a couple of nights in April and we were wondering if its best to pre-book any activities (i.e. Safari's )? If so, do we do that through you guys? Also wanted to pre-warn you that we are both vegan. Is this going to be a problem? Have you a direct email address we could contact you on? Many thanks. Claire.
