Towels (bath and swimming).
Bedding (For a small fee, arrangements can be made for tourists).
Crockery, cutlery and cooking utensils (depending on the kind of accommodation you choose – See Accommodation page).
Wood, charcoal, and ice are on sale at the bar.
A full bar available and the Restaurant serves home-cooked meals daily. Light meals always available through the day. You can thus save yourself the hassle of cooking.
The Bapong shopping center is only 11 km's away where you can find everything you need (a pharmacy, butchery, Shoprite, Ice Cream parlour, a nail bar and barber shop.
For fresh produce such as milk and vegetables, the local village shop is just 1 km outside the main Voëlkop gate (next to the shebeen) and you buy besides fresh veggies, also the basics such as soap, toothbrush, bread, milk, snacks and last week Sowetan. Prices are beyond low and it is a good principle to support the locals because they are our friends and security. Be friendly, take your time and you might even get discount too (A smile takes you a long way).
