We were there for the Easter Weekend, arriving on the Thursday and enjoyed it very much. The quiet surroundings in the "kloof" was heaven and the mountains, well, they spoke to us......... There was no open plains in sight, only the Roggeberg mountains on the one side and more mountains on the other but then again we wanted to experience the kloof as we previously stayed at the Elandsberg Cottages where there are open plains.
On Saturday there was a thunder storm with what felt like a Gail wind afterwards, every thing covered in fine dust and sand. We had no option but to pack up and leave for home at 6 that evening. All the way back to Stellenbosch the wind was blowing profusely. In retrospect it was a good decision to pack up and go.
The camp site has no shade but fresh waster was just 50m away from a borehole that also attracted wild life in the evenings. Just laying and listing to the animal sounds was priceless.
We were fortunate to see amongst others 2 Eland, one with only one horn grazing in a distance and disappearing in the kloof towards the reception offices. I realized that leaving a couple of days early was Tankwa`s way of inviting me back to come and enjoy the areas we missed.
We will most definitely be back!
