Thank you Rita, Phillip and Marilyn for being excellent hosts. We so enjoyed our stay and loved the cottage. It is very tastefully done with a beautiful bathroom and outside area, a fireplace and big comfortable chairs.

We stayed here for 2 nights as part of a birding tour and it is my favorite of all the places we stayed in 3 weeks in S.A. The "sheds" are luxurious, beautifully furnished stone cottages with mountain views. They have a living room, wood-burning stove, exquisite bed and huge bath, sitting area, kitchen area and private patio with sunbirds...

I traveled with a group of four birders plus a guide, and we enjoyed a two-night stay in Wakkerstroom. My room--more like a suite--was huge and beautifully appointed. Even the bathroom was special. Breakfast was in the main house--and was extraordinarily generous and delicious. The staff also provided us with picnic lunches for our birding excursion. Love this place and...

We stayed at The Wetlands in April on our way back from Safari in Kruger National Park with Lawson's Tours. We stayed two nights and were very comfortable in their guest house and enjoyed lovely breakfasts as part of our room charge.

While this property is a bit off the beaten track, it is well worth the trip to get there. Rooms are HUGE, bathrooms are spacious, service is wonderful. Loved the small decanter of sherry in the room for an after dinner aperitif. They also serve a full wonderful breakfast with both hot and cold items. As a birder, staying there...
