What our guests have said about this accommodation

Caroline Dichmont
We had a fantastic stay. The park is wonderful and we were very comfortable in our cottage. Our only criticisms were with the bathrooms. One shower had no hot water and in the other, it was impossible to regulate the temperature - it was either scalding or ice cold. Also, the absence of toilet-roll holders was a mystery - there was everything else one would need! These things did not spoil our stay.
Udo Sachse
Was a total pleasure in all aspects.
Carien du Plessis
I just love the Abrahamskraal house, it is on its own in the middle of nowhere! The house is also suitable for someone in a wheelchair.

Ons het n geruime tyd gelede verslag gegee in verband met ons verblyf in die park, ons sal bly wees indien ons terugvoering kan kry.

Ons het die park vanaf Langebaan hek ingekom. Die persoon daar het ons net deurgelaat sonder dat ons enige dokumentasie getoon het. Het aanvaar dat ons iewers die kantoor gaan kry en in proses by die ander hek uitgekom waar die persoon ons darem toe gehelp het en sleutels aan ons oorhandig het.Ons moes toe "conservation fee" betaal en die volgende dag ons volle "wild card" van R560.00. Die water vir stort was net lou - en dit in hierdie koue tyd van die jaar.
