Night in Inkwekwezi
I had a good 1 night stay at the facility and they have lots of parking space. My room had a pond view which was very refreshing in the morning as i drink my coffee looking ag the fish and birds. The beds werent so good but ok. They should perhaps consider having a small fridge in the rooms since they say they have braai areas. Showers had hot water and bathrooms were very clean.
