Note that Bateleur's main focus is on our visitors enjoyment of the natural environment. We cater for nature lovers and outdoor enthusiasts like hikers, mountain bikers, birders and those who seek refuge from city life in seclusion and tranquillity.

Guest Comments

My family and I spent 4 nights in Gumtree Cottage. (which accommodates 7 people)
The setting was quiet and peaceful. The house itself was clean but not what I expected. My biggest surprise was that there was a donkey to heat the water. Also the kitchen was not very well equipped - many chipped plates, only 1 small salad bowl and no oven. Cooking look place on the fire outside or on a 2 plate gas stove (luckily there were only 4 of us!)
The walks up in the mountains were lovely and the views spectacular! The swimming pool was about 3km from our house so I would suggest that if cooling down in a pool is important, guests try to book one of the cottages closer to the pool.
There is very little (none at our cottage) cell phone signal - it was lovely to be away from crazy city life!


Everything was excellent mountain hiking swimming and accomodation...looking foward for another stay..the cleaning lady has this traditional home hospitality and she made everyone feel at home.louise the hostess shes just a friendly person, we had a problem with our transport to pick us up and had to check out later than expected she told us to relax and feel at home until our taxi comes...i give them a total rate

Zero communication, terrible roads. They make you drive all the way to reception on a terrible road only to drive all the way back to your accommodation. The keys are left in the unit so there is no need to drive to reception..if you dont have a suv or bakkie with proper clearance, dont even think of going there. They also force you to pay the full amount before even going there, as they will not give you the pin for the main gate until fully paid....
