Our second visit was as good as the first one! Ilara and Robbie make great hosts and Plumbago is the ideal place to stop over en route to the Kruger National Park or if you are exploring the Escarpment. We can also recommend requesting dinner (although you need to do so before arrival) - absolutely fabulous after a long drive.... More

Dishes are carefully and expertly... More

Located approx. 15km outside of Hazyview (keep directions), wonderful guesthouse located in the hills. Rooms have a wonderful atmosphere, the owner (Ilara) very nice and provide good hints. Breakfast rich. All in all highly recommended.

Plumbago guest house outside of Hazyview was absolutely spectacular! The setting was breathtaking, with an amazing view of the Kruger National Park in the distance. The suite was amazing and offered everything one would expect for a 5 star accommodation. Illara and Robbie were wonderful and made us quite simply, feel right at home. The attention to detail in the... More
