It really makes a difference!

Our family spent five amazing days in the Garden Route during the June-July school holiday. We stayed two wonderful nights in a tastefully decorated self-catering unit at Beside Still Waters in Wilderness. It's not always easy finding a unit that sleeps six. We were very comfortable in The Upper Room, which had three bedrooms, two bathrooms, a kitchen, and sitting room. All the rooms were bright and friendly. An extra touch throughout were the fresh flowers. It also had a balcony with a stunning view of the lake in front and the diverse wildlife on the mountain behind. We saw birds, monkeys and antelope from our balcony.

Our wonderful hosts: Rod and Hydie McDade

There are lots of interesting things to see and do in Wilderness. We visited the beautiful beach, walked the boardwalks along the water, and there was a hut for bird watching enthusiasts on the lake close to our accommodation. We did so much in such a short time that I'll share some of those photos over the next few weeks.

I'm also on Instagram.
