I'm so reluctant to write a review and share this hidden gem of a place with the wider world. The unexpected highlight of our trip to South Africa was our stay here, which overlapped with Christmas. The location of the cottages was beautifully secluded, yet so close to Cango Caves and the main town centre. We were a family of...

We had two nights here in the middle of our trip. We had a pre-booked Meerkat safari only to find that they do them too but also went on a tour of their ostrich farm (explained the process - no gimmicky ostrich-exploiting races) and an early evening safari. Both were very personal. We ate there twice (as well as breakfast)...

Situated in well-kept gardens and lawns are many seating areas and small swimming pools. Our room 1 was large and well equipped. Kitchen had kettle toaster microwave and large oven and hob. Great if you want to...

There are two pools on site. The staff are pleasant, friendly, very helpful and excellent at what they do. We had a tremendous tour of the...

Booked a stop over for one night and were surprised: nice and authentic guest rooms. The restaurant is great, chef is cooking, serving and hosting - he's awesome in anything. We felt welcome. Affordable and less pricy 3 courses dinner, good wine selection and a wonderful evening. If you like a farm stay: Go there!

This breathtaking accommodation has views that will take you breath away. The reception was warm and kind. The food top notch. Great nights rest and the rooms have all you need plus more.

Berluda is an exceptional place to stay. The rooms are spacious and well equipped, the grounds are immaculately kept and the staff are amazing in their warmth and welcome. The food style is very good rural cooking rather than "cheffy" cuisine and Banzi produced an excellent braai just for us as other guests had not turned up. For other evenings...
