None of us knew anything about Oxwagon or where it was, but on arrival both old and young were so thrilled. It's a secluded nice place ideall for a small group. Mark was so understanding & actually went out of his way to make us feel at home. Definitely will go back again, & I havent stopped telling people about Oxwagon! Keep up the friendliness Mark!As for the oxwagons, very unique.

The accommodation and stay was great. However, not the Oxwaggon's fault....It was very,very cold. Then the single bed in the Oxwaggon is not meant for a grown up. I fell off the bed with mattress and all during the night as the mattress overlaps the base by quite a lot. The trekker braai and service was excellent I will come again in the summer :-)
