Managers Lloyd, Owen, and their team looked after us very well by providing scrumptious meals and they were always willing and helpful. We had a fun golf day which is very picturesque especially hold no 4 that overlooks the tea with the rolling hills in the distance. On the 7th hole, they set up a gin tent for us by the river which was extremely welcoming in the heat and some people enjoyed a cold and refreshing dip in the river.
The next day a group of twitchers went on a guided bird walk with the very knowledgeable guide Morgan which lasted approx 2 hours and they saw a number of rare birds including the palm vulture, whilst others in our group went on their own walks around the estate... After lunch, we enjoyed a delicious freshly baked birthday chocolate cake followed by a pig on the spit in the evening.
The last day was spent relaxing at various waterfalls, a big group of us went to the 3 Man Waterfall which is only a 10 min walk from the lodge below their veggie garden. There was a small pool where we enjoyed a cold but refreshing dip. A few of the others in our party decided to walk 45 mm to the Mermaids pool which has a large natural swimming pool. Then the teenagers took the driving option to the Bum Slide which is a 10-metre slide that they thoroughly enjoyed.
