                  Our stay in Camp Nguni was really great. The staff are friendly and helpful, and the peace and quiet contributed to an amazingly relaxing time. There are many hiking trails to explore, and the view from the highest point in the Free State of the Vredefort Dome is magnificent. Ample bird life and game in the area. The communal kitchen is well equipped with large fridge and table top gas stove (no oven), but bring your own sharp knives.

                  If you're looking for a bush get away complete with bad access road and worse cell reception, Stephan and his team have the place for you.The tents are clean as are the bathrooms. The shared lapas have everything you need to make a meal and store your food. DSTV on a flat screen for the kids and the most amazing night time skies.We were booked at Thwane for eight days and my two young children weren't bored once. There are lovely hikes on the farm and loads to do in the surrounding area.Truly a special week away. Thanks to Stephan and his amazing Thwane team. We'll definitely see you again!

                  Absolutely loved our stay. Would love to have stayed longer.Some suggestions:A mat in the bathroom for when you climb out of the shower.A mat at the entrance to dust off feet before entering tent.Otherwise facilities are clean, comfortable and the location is awesome.

                  The place itself is really nice, situated next to the mountains it does have the atmosphere of desolation. At the same time: it is extremely hard to get to and, honestly, I don't recommend doing it with the compact car. It could be done - as we did it - but even driving extremely carefully we had some scratches on the car that rental company won't like. It basically is about 4km of gravel road which is not that bad and then another 4km on which basically every 200m you scratch the surface with the chassis.Also: they close the gate at 8 p.m., an information that we didn't find on safarinow,...
