We have been traveling from Kruger along the Wild Coast..... I wish we had booked more then one night here. So peaceful. The rooms are spacious, cozy and very clean!!! You feel you are in Africa due to the style, the staff is incredible and the dinner we much enjoyed! I would come back here in a heartbeat!!!

Nice garden/pool. Silent. Very tasty food. Safe. Good help with logistics, safaria, experiences. Friendly straff. Clean and tidy rooms. We were 12 people, adults and children. Important to be in a safe place, to let the children run and play. We got good help with experiences, tried safaridrives, riversafari, riding. Food was delicate and tasty.

I agree with all of the glowing reviews below. We arrived at Chrislin after driving 500+ miles from Cape Town. It was pitch black, we were exhausted,and we thought we would never get to the end of that long, dark rocky road, but it was all worth it when we saw our accommodations. Individual thatched huts with modern appliances, tasteful...

Because of the thatched roof you could hear the cycadas at night and birdsong early in the morning which was lovely. We ate in the hotels restaurant on both evenings and the food was very...

The road to reach it is in the middle of nowhere but once you get there it looks like heaven. Little african cottages surrounded by gardens and orange trees. Very friendly staff and amazing service. Definitely recommended.
