Onjowewe - The house on the rocks
On the same property, not far from the village, one also finds the uniquely styled ‘House in the Rocks” Onjowewe, which was formally built for a movie set, but re-furbished into a rustic and original accommodation establishment. It features 3 separate bedrooms on 2 levels with 6 Single and 3 DBL beds, en-suite bathrooms, a rustic kitchen on floor level, a spacious open-plan living & dining room room with a large outside entertainment area inclusive of a beautiful pool. Due to the popular demand of Onjowewe, the owners introduced Onjowewe Bush Camp in May 2016.
The Bush Camp is situated at the adjacent Campsite #3. It features 2 roomed canvas style tents. One has a double bed & the other 2 twin beds. There is an hot water ablution block with 2 showers & 2 toilets as well an Entertainment Braai area with a splash pool & relaxing area. The Bush Camp is available for Self-Catering or on DBB option like Onjowewe House. The House and the Bushcamp are booked for only ONE private party at the time, either on self-catering or catered basis. 3 additional campsites with each it's own ablution block are available, too.
