Please note: Each bathrooms consist of a shower, basin and (flushing) toilet. The shower’s are supplied with hot water from our gas geysers, but hot water is only available in the evenings when the generator is powered on. The toilets make use of a septic tank and care should be taken when using these, as highlighted below.
The unit is powered by solar for lighting and charging of cell phones (only). It uses a combination of gas and solar for its fridges and stove. There is a generator on site that serves as a backup but also provides for additional lighting and usage of the onsite electrical appliances such as microwave, electric kettle etc. for 2hrs every night, as well as charging of any other electronic equipment. Use of the generator does come at an additional cost if used outside the allocated 2 hrs per night.
The unit is equipped with gas and solar powered freezers.
Please note: Patrons need to be careful not to pack the freezers to the top and to rather spread meat items between the freezers. Beverages should be added as and when needed. The lodge has 2 x 210l AC freezers on standby but arrangements can be made with management to switch these on if additional space is required.
There is a huge portable braai & potjie stand positioned in the covered veranda area (adjacent to the kitchen), where patrons can chill and relax whilst enjoying an outdoor cooked meal.
We have two helpers who provide housekeeping (Elizabeth) & yard maintenance (Villella) services daily. Their costs are included in the daily rate. Elizabeth is responsible for household cleaning and will bake bread or make fat cakes if you like, but you need to supply the ingredients. If required, she can also make your breakfasts for an additional fee. The fee will be used to source an additional helper to assist with cleaning.
