Thanks Garry and Liz

Karamu Trail Track Farm Stay and Horse Trekking

 I loved the seclusion, and being in the country. Well equipped kitchen, kind hosts that weren't too hard to find, but also gave us privacy. My partner loves cows, and I love horses so we were both in our happy place! EXCEPTIONAL value for the money.
