What do people say about Riverman Cabin
“We really enjoyed our weekend trip out to Tonteldoos at the riverman cabin. You just know when you have arrived there, the air is fresh its quiet with only the wind trees and birds making that lovely outdoor music to your ears. That fresh air out there is just priceless .the cabins where cosy and snug, we just loved it with our little porch with a big panoramic view of the wilderness. The STEAKS at the restaurant are a must-have and the frozen jägermeister shots at the bar, definitely going back there again.” – Basil TripAdvisor.
“Made a booking online for a weekend getaway and after finally getting to the venue after a pretty long and hard dust road from Dullstroom, was very happy with the spot. Peace and tranquillity in comfortable rooms with heaps of firewood for frosting evenings. Will be back!” – Gareth TripAdvisor.
“Friendly service with awesome food, drink and a driving range to boot… We were at the woolly bugger farm across the road and almost completely missed this gem of a stop across the dusty dirt road. If you are willing to drive a dirt road from Dullstroom or in the area and have no haste to go back to the old and boring this is the place to visit with friends and family alike.” –Jethran TripAdvisor.
