                  Location seemed safe.

                  as mentioned the lounge area could have been much better. can't understand why francois didn't have a lovely warming fire going for his guests on one of the coldest nights johannesburg had, unseasonal he told us. the whole day on the 6th sept. 2012, it rained, thunder and lightening flashed and we didn't venture out of our room because the rest of the lodge was cold and dark. that evening we sat with 3 other guests and were all frozen as we ate our dinner. must say that meal, ostrich, was delicious.
