"We first stayed at Witsieshoek in 1990, in the room that's now roofless and derelict. We would love to see that space renovated! The place remains as charming as ever and the new units are looking good. We had a lovely visit over our three days. The staff were friendly and extremely accommodating and did their best to ensure we got wonderful pictures of two bearded vultures. We will be back!"
