Woodpecker Rondavel

Sleeps 2 En suite Serviced Daily Tea, Coffee, Kettle


The thatch rondavel is a traditional African dwelling, taking is name from its round shape. Captivating mountain views from your bed make this a great romantic getaway and perfect base for your berg exploration. Set alongside a copse of indigenous trees you may be lucky enough to "tap tap" of the woodpecker bird after which this rondavel has been named. This room is ideal for those seeking peace and quiet with the small stream gurgling nearby attracting a multitude of mountain birds, 19 of which are endemic to the Sani Pass area. All bedding and bath towels are provided, and an oil heater is available for the cold winter months. A tray with tea, organic Fair Trade coffee and plunger and homebaked biscuits makes you feel at home right away. We provide creamy farm milk from our own herd of Jersey cows.
