The Shack (Self catering)

“Thank you, Lisa, the stay at The Shack on Galileo farm was lovely. Thank you for the seamless arrangements. I had been so looking forward to spend my time in the beautiful dams, but the weather was spiteful. So, instead, we sat at water’s edge and watched the fascinating bird-life. We became very involved with and concerned about a young weaver male who was building a nest – he was hyperventilating with fear of failing – poor young man: so trying his best. And we were visited by two magnificent Blue Cranes – it seemed like a blessing”

Built on a small island surrounded by water, The Shack is the ideal spot to relax, enjoy the view and see a wide array of birds. This open plan chalet sleeps two adults but there is a double sleeper couch for two extra persons. The bathroom comes with a shower. Meal preparation takes place in a fully equipped kitchen with gas hob (no oven), fridge, microwave and inside and outside stone fireplaces. A quaint and comfortable lounge is situated in front of the inside fireplace. Tea, coffee, milk, sugar and rusks are provided.
