Please drive SLOWLY and with care on the gravel road. After heavy rains the last 6 km of gravel can be bumpy (No need for a 4×4 or high rise vehicle). We do try to fill the potholes as much as we can, but they seem just part of getting to us, as is the silence when you are here – But it’s worth it!
On arrival please visit Reception first – We like to meet all our visitors, You are important!
