Overlander Oasis

We stayed here the second time after January 17. Leanne&Calvin are great hosts. Calvin is a very good mechanic and always happy to help you. We stayed for one week in the very beautiful and big bungalow while our car got a new painting and a polished Cabin. Our Landcruiser Pickup is 20 years old and had a bit of rust. Jesus and his guys made a great job. Our Camper looked like new :)) Calvin can arrange a appointment with him. It‘s very recommendable!
