[rondavel]Rondavels


A »rondavel is a structure unique to Southern Africa. It is basically a westernized version of the traditional African hut.


We have two such rondavels, both recently renovated and supplied with modern comforts inside. Jump to: Rondavel 1 or Rondavel 2.


 PLEASE NOTE:  The rondavels are in close (20 meters) proximity of our house. This means that you can see our house when you look out of some windows! This affects Rondavel One more than Rondavel Two. Please don't act surprised by this view.
