"Staying at Barnie's Cottage was an experience I can't wait to repeat. My room at the top was private and peaceful. 
Spending time with the family was absolutely delightful.
Within five minutes of my arrival I felt at home and as though I was amongst friends.
I would highly recommend this and all the extra activities on offer to afford yourself an unforgettable truly authentic African experience."
