I really enjoyed my stay there. At first I thought it was to far from the town center. But when i arrived and saw the view and the nature, peaceful atmosphere it changed my mind. Its a stunning location. You are catered for with cooking and there is a bar. The staff are very cool. Get ready to relax next to the fire places. And book for more than one night, because you wont want to leave:)
Matthew and Vicky are wonderful people, providing a comfortable stay for travellers, but also doing good things in their community to support those in need (including domestic animals). The views from their multiple decks are impressive and there is plenty of wood for the many fire pits if it is chilly. The road in is a bit of a challenge right now but don't let it deter you, it is worth the effort and road maintenance was underway while we were there to make it better.
The best South African hostel. Clean rooms, amazing view and outstanding food!! Visited with some Americans and they rated the food the best they have had in South Africa. Will definitely visit again! Thanks
The African Array Lodge was great. It was very cosy and my room was beautiful. Everything was very clean. My breakfast was also very good and I had it on the terrace with a great view. It was really cheap for what you get.

Matthew, Vicki and Wayne were amazing hosts at African Array. We practically had the place to ourselves which was wonderful. The outside areas were great for groups, sitting around the fire and looking at the amazing views from up on the hill and at the stars at night. Matthew's breakfast was one of the best we've had in a long time. The place was clean, spacious and had clearly been cared for. Matthew and Vicki are true professionals! You will surely enjoy a rest here - highly recommended.
