The front porch is a great place to eat breakfast or sit with a glass of wine in the evening and watch the sunset over the mountains.

If the need arise Nkandla Rondawel may be annexed with Lexi’s to accommodate a total of four people.
Nkandla is our president’s envy. This Rondawel was not built with taxpayer money. It sleeps two, but does not offer self-catering (no kitchen). It has an almost open-air bathroom with Shower, basin & Toilet. Water is heated in a traditional "donkey" where you have to make a fire to heat up the water. It gives you that "hunting your own food" feeling. Nkandla can be annexed to Lara’s or Lexi’s should you need more beds. It has 2 ¾ beds, Tea tray, mini fridge & heater.
(NB: It is not available on its own as a standalone unit.)
