A unique place, in the heart of nature and super engaged!
Here, we offer different types of accommodations, you will necessarily find your happiness:
- Camping grounds with common bathrooms
- Shacks
- Huts
- Shared rooms
- Rondavels basotho (traditional houses, often round or oval)

Owners and employees can help you find the hikes that surround the site. They also offer equestrian treks and offer mountain bikes for hire. For all these activities it is recommended to call in a guide (local, who knows the place by heart).

Responsible stance

All accommodations are designed in the traditional way, with local materials. The Rondavals prove that there is no need for air conditioning, even in hot weather, since it keeps you spawning all day and warm at night.
The entire site is powered by solar energy. And they encourage travellers to moderate their water consumption (water management is very important in this region).
They draw water from a local source (for toilets and laundry). For drinking water, they provide containers filled with clean spring water and invite you to bring back your own rechargeable bottle, to limit the consumption of plastic.

All the vegetables that make up the dishes are purchased from the local educational farm.

This place is also a foundation that responds to the problems that villagers may encounter.
HIV is widespread in the area and education is neither free nor universal. The foundation employs 7 local people, because no one else can better respond to problems in a sustainable way. It renovates ruined and overcrowded schools; They teach students how to use computers; They provide nutritional support to HIV-positive people; They offer scholarships to students who have lost their parents so they can continue to go to school and teach community members more effective farming techniques to increase yields; They provide micro-loans to local entrepreneurs to boost income and employment.
As visitors, you can bring back items to help them (ask what they need before you leave!)
