A nice surprise in the desert.
A very nice stop-over in the desert, with good service and nice snacks. However, the wines are decidedly average.

The place is beatifull as we come across zebra, leopard, and different lizards! The walk is artificial as groups are guided by two San men( one is translating into English) and it is just nearby ( easy for everybody) and you will see the same places which had been visited by many groups before but it is worth it as you could learn about the plant species used for arrow poisoning (if you are interested) and see the old cave paintings. We enjoy but we realise that it is only theatre! The jewellerry for sell is quite expensive!
