The self-catering unit consists of two bedrooms, one shared bathroom, a fully serviced open-plan kitchen and a dining area. The braai area is shaded by large Acacia trees, and overlooking the dam will be the perfect ending to a day exploring the bush trails where wildlife enthusiast may spot several of our antelope species such as kudu, duiker and steenbok, wild boars and bush pig which roam the fenceless camp.
The Damhuis is truly a “green” retreat boasting its own solar panelled electricity supply and gas for cooking and warm water.

Or for the more laid back visitor, stargazing around the bonfire pit or entertaining on the large stoep, with its big table, perfect for al fresco dining.
