"We spent 4 nights at Daktari and found the cottage very comfortable . The rooms were spacious, the braai boma was delightful, and the fishing was good. We enjoyed the geese and the birds and seeing the how's on the adjacent field. Close enough to shops etc yeto still with a country feel."

"What an absolute gem! Spent one night here and will definitely be back. Loved every moment. Cottage is perfect for a quick weekend break. The host was very accommodating and even allowed us to check out a little later. Woke up to the beautiful sound of the rain and the geese coming past for a visit. Absolute gem!!"
"Total Relaxation!"

"If you are from Cape Town and want to feel that you've travelled a great distance to escape the madness of the city to recharge your batteries or have a romantic getaway, without actually travelling a great distance, Daktari is your go to place. Daktari is far enough from the main homestead to make you feel isolated. The cottage is clean, comfortable and fully equipped for all your needs (I loved the kitchen!).The highlight for me was listening to the sounds of the geese and birds and watching squirrels cavorting in the nearby trees. Paul is a friendly, laid back host and will make you feel completely at home. I have no doubt we will be back :-)."

"Had 2 amazing days at Daktari. Close to wine farms for wine tasting. The house had everything we needed even underfloor heating which was a bonus in the cold weather. The braai area was awesome, we had an lovely braai. So nice to wake up to the sound of geese and ducks. The view from the cottage is stunning!!!!"

"Daktarifarm is one of the best places which we've had the opportunity to stay. Our stay was only for one night but we'll stay there again with our next Cape Town holiday trip. The accommodations are exceptionally generous. Everything which one may need is supplied, from the kitchen to the bedroom and everything in between. There is more than ample room for entertaining a fair crowd around the boma or in the dining room. The natural setting lends itself to tranquillity and we were fortunate enough to see several squirrels, which was an unexpected bonus. This is the perfect base from which to properly explore the surrounding and outlaying areas,  join up with family and friends, colleagues and tour groups. "

"Ideal for what we required as aone-night stopover. Very spacious home. A useful addition would be a guest handbook giving details of where everything is and how to use the appliances."
