Interesting and excellent place with a stunning view. And don’t be surprised if some animals come and visit. Beautiful braai area under indigenous flora.

Tannie Anchen and her late husband has created a very special and unique place called Bokmakmakierie honeymoon suite and jacuzzi. Coupled with that is her customer centricity that sees her going way beyond the call of duty to take care of her guests. We are currently enjoying our 6th visit right now, so very highly recommended!
