Power, Water, Wifi & The Loo
A very clever and wonderful man, Vaughan Myrton (RIP), decided that we should install a 64Kva generator a few years back when load-shedding started getting rife.
We are now able to operate the entire lodge with our beautiful silent beast when Eskom load-sheds. You will experience 30 seconds delay as the generator powers up.
Our water is fed from a natural spring and is perfectly drinkable. We had it tested!
Please be Water Wise and report any water leaks as soon as possible.
All cottages are on a septic tank system, so please do not flush anything other than a Number 1, Number 2 and Toilet paper down the Loo.
NO condoms, nappies, sanitary items, wet wipes, dental floss, etc. These items mess with the system and could create a horrible mess which you might encounter!
CELLPHONE RECEPTION & WiFi
MTN – MTN is the strongest and most reliable network. Despite having a generator, our MTN tower links to the feed from Belfast, that tower does not have a generator, therefore we get no signal when Belfast has loadshedding. Fortunately this occurs infrequently.
Vodacom – Very unreliable and very frustrating especially over peak seasons like Easter and Christmas. Since late 2018 the signal has severe fluctuations.
Cell C & Telkom – Very weak and intermittent.
WiFi – We do not supply the chalets with WiFI. However if you have an emergency or urgent work to do, please contact us. We can assist with a temporary connection for you.
