To learn more about South Africa and its people and not just tick of the main attractions we try and avoid the major hotels and resorts* and revert to private Guesthouses and B&B’s, so that one has the chance to get to know the owners and other guests that can share insights of the area such as local history, traditional food, hidden attractions that you might not even find in any tourist guide. Most of these Guesthouses and private owned B&B’s are accustomed to have house animals on their properties. If you are not a fan of pets please let us during the booking. Also be aware to notify us about any possible allergies so that we can communicate this with the accommodation or help select one that suits your needs and wishes. * Except private game lodges, such as the Buffelsdrift Game Lodge.
