If you ever wanted a romantic week-end this is the place to go to. Our bedroom must have been a ballroom in its earlier life. The beds are extra king size and beautifully enclosed by drapes. We had two balconies - we could see both the Kruger Park and the Numbi gate as we lay in bed. Absolutely stunning. Rob...

We stayed at the honeymoon cottage on our honeymoon, it was well equipped, clean and very welcoming! Rob and Don were the best hosts we could've asked for, Rob had priceless advice for what to do. If you have the chance pay them a visit!

My wife and I rented the honeymoon cottage for six nights in mid March and can not praise it enough. Fantastic value for money. Rob and Dawne have created a paradise with majestic views across the Sabie valley. It is set in a lovely peaceful location yet within an easy ten minute drive to all the best restaurants and supermarkets...

Stunning country getaway for two. Perfect place to stay over after a full day Kruger drive as it is closely located to the main Kruger National Park hate. Heather and John were exceptional hosts! We were treated to a delicious breakfast in the morning. Overall great stay!

Be mindful of the fact that you’ll have to drive approx 10 kilos or so to get to the nearest restaurant, shop etc. Directions to...
