 Other Amenities

The entire property is bordered by lovely gardens, which are mainly indigenous and water wise. daisy bushes, geraniums and other plants border the paths and pools.

  • Manicured lawns surround both pools and there is a large field which has a volleyball court, a pond and a makeshift soccer field. This is used for in house teambuilds.


  • Power and Lighting : Electricity is provided directly from Eskom. The gardens are all lit with energy saving lighting. Geysers all have blankets. The internal electricity grid is modular so that sections can be switched off when not in use without disturbing those sectors in use. Alternative power supply devices are available for both conference rooms and the kitchen has gas stoves. 


  • Water is pumped by 2 on site boreholes with abundant water. The water is tested by UWC twice annually. The water system for the guesthouse exits the tanks at 4,5 bar which is more than adequate for the showers and baths to be in use simultaneously. Just like the electricity system, the water supply is modular so that one sector can be switched off, without disturbing the entire system if repairs are required. A reliable contaractor, L Ruster Pump Services, has been attending to the water systems for the past 10 year and is available on o83 448 1457 regarding any queries.


  • Sewerage. A large sewerage tank disposes of waste materials. This system does not require emptying as chemical Fatkin /Pitkin is used which automatically bio degrades the waste material.
