Froggy Pond Cottage

Romantic Reflections

Froggy Pond cottage is a LUXURY level cottage. See detailed facilities here.

Froggy Pond offers everything our standard cottages do, PLUS  Free WIFI, Comprehensive DSTV; Flatscreen TV; Queen-sized bed in the main bedroom (instead of double); Weber-style kettle braai in addition to braai; table & chairs instead of dining counter; high quality finery.

It is the cottage situated closest to the Forest Edge Reception, hence less private than some of the other cottages and it overlooks a very shallow pond which is frequented by herons, yellow-billed ducks, hamerkop, moorhens and a host of different frogs.  It is our iconic cottage, epitomising tranquility.

It is popular with Honeymooners and for Romantic Getaways, and of course bird-lovers who enjoy twitching right from their stoep or hammock! With the jungle gym and bonfire area slightly behind it also makes a good choice for families, although those with small children sometimes prefer to be further away from the open pond.

*** IMPORTANT: Please note that we do NOT under any circumstances guarantee a specific cottage where there are more than one available in a specific cottage class. You are welcome to indicate your first and second choice as we obviously want to make you happy where we can, but it is impossible to place all guests in the cottage they want, if it happens to be the same cottage! A shift to a different cottage may be necessitated in the case of an unforseen operational challenge like a burst geyser, for example.
