The Bakoni Hide-away is an off-the-grid retreat, ideal for a romantic getaway for lovers of the African bush. Unfenced, it is set on a remote spot on the side of a mountain with abundant birdlife, buck and other game around. The design was inspired by the many stone circles that occur in this region and the Bakoni people who are believed to have roamed the area in the past. It is ideal for couples and 2 older children can be accommodated on the mezzanine floor if privacy is not a requirement.

Thanks for the review Kelly! The bedspreads are imported from India and bought at my favourite shop in the Oriental Plaza in Fordsburg - I know where it is but not what it's called I'm afraid.

A beautiful cottage with all the finer details so often missed B&B's. You literally only need to bring clothes and toiletries. Superbly designed to blend into the natural scenes, with all natural products. Everything is in excellent condition and Dee's hospitality is 5-star!
