It has a master bedroom en-suite, a children's room with a separate toilet and a small kitchenette.
Rooms & Suites:
The bedrooms are equipped with all the modern conveniences with heated towel rails and 100% cotton percale linen adding to your comfort. These luxuries do not detract from the colonial design, but merely enhance your turn of the century South African colonial life experience. The beds are ¾ twins but doubles are available on request.
Food & Wine:
An elegant room that is separated from the lounge area by a fireplace. With your Three Trees hosts, dining is a family affair. A buffet style breakfast & lunch is served either outside on the viewing deck or on the breezy verandah. Dinners are a set menu with 3 homely farm-style courses followed by port or cognac in front of the fireplace or out under the stars.
A viewing deck and swimming pool offer complete relaxation in a truly African setting. The pool is situated in a secluded area under a large Acacia tree, very near to the rooms and the main lodge.
The main living area has an open-plan design, with four sets of large double doors leading onto the verandah. The result is a flowing space, where you can relax on a comfy chair, read in the afternoon sun and enjoy convivial dinners. In the winter an open log fire and "Dover" coal stove create a welcoming environment.
BATTLE OF SPIOENKOP; Romantically situated on top of a hill with views that redefine 'big sky country', the tour tells of the bloodiest day of the war, played out by a cast seldom challenged. On that hill were Louis Botha (the 1st Prime Minister of the Union of South Africa), Winston Churchill (voted the most famous Briton of the 20th century) and Mohandas Ghandi (the future Mahatma). The result of this battle confirmed that those early disasters of 'Black Week' were not merely beginners luck on behalf of the Boers - Spioenkop is arguably the most famous of all battles between the British and the Boers.
BATTLE OF COLENSO & CHURCHILL'S CAPTURE; After lunch (at about 14:30), the tour departs for the site of Winston Churchill's Capture, where the Boer forces took him prisoner. This event propelled him onto the political stage in Britain. The tour then proceeds to the site of the Battle of Colenso, where General Sir Redvers Buller suffered his first defeat in his attempt to relieve Ladysmith. In this battle 7 Victoria Crosses were won.
