Power, Wifi & Water
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.
TVs in Chalets
There is a TV with HDMI cable in each chalet except The Cottage. We do not have DStv decoders. You are welcome to bring your own streaming device and Wi-Fi Router. We have one for rent @R200/day (incl WiFi Router).
Our water is fed from a natural spring and is perfectly delicious to drink.
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 load-shedding.
Telkom & Vodacom – Good strong signal, but very unreliable and very frustrating especially over peak seasons like Easter and Christmas. Since late 2018 the signal has severe fluctuations.
Cell C – Very weak and intermittent.
WiFi – We do not supply the chalets with WiFI. However you are able to connect to the WiFi in the Function Room (ask us for the password) or we have an MTN router for hire @R150/day (first come, first served basis).
