Stunning place to stay and relax and regenerate, the owners are the nicest people and make you feel so welcome. The service is way beyond the norm, cannot recommend them enough.

Place not open to public without prior bookings on their opening dates. This was not made clear, and staff was rather curt in telling us off!

We had a great day today at Kanyana, it was the open day and it's was extremely well organised, loads to do and see, well worth the trip. The volunteers were wonderful, so knowledgable and welcoming. Lovely people doing a very great service.

Thanks for the lovely review. We certainly are small, which gives us the opportunity to provide personal tours to small groups. We hope to see you on a tour soon :)
