A place in the Great Karoo, just 25km from the peaceful village of Prince Albert.
Here lies self-catering guesthouses, in a valley at the foothills of the mighty Swartberg Mountains: where gigantic blue gums tell the stories of forgotten treasures, forgotten times. A place where the Bushmen left their history on the walls, where Willows hang their weary heads and winds whisper ancient secrets, ancient songs.
