We had a awesome stay at Laughing waters. Our hosts were so nice. In the evening we sat by the fire place all together and had nice conversations. They gave us great sightseeing tips. In the day the garden and swimming pool great to relax. And also breakfast and dinner were wonderful. Everything you need for a cosy homestay.

Heather and John run a very lovely place, quite central to Hazyview, but remote enough to be quite and relaxing. They helped us big time to explore the area and shared a lot of their enormous knowledge of the land, the people and the animals. On request they served a very delicious vegan breakfast and dinner. Thanks for a great time!

The moment we drove through the gates, passing the Lemon farm, to the B&B we were amazed by the beautifull surroundings of the guesthouse. Our visite was amazing and all thanks to John and Heather. We wished we could have stayed longer! They made us feel at home right from the start. They showed us the surroundings, gave us info about South Africa and their region and entertained us with stories and great conversations all night. We really recommend eating here, as it was delicious.
Our Luggage got lost at the airport and was brought to Laughing Waters at 01.00 AM, but this was not a problem at all for Heather, she stayed up with us and we had a lovely evening. Even days after, as one travelbag was a bit more delayed, she went the extra mile to get it to us on our onward destination as a mediatior between Lufthansa and our family!
Also, if you're going to drive the panoramaroute, please ask John for info. His knowledge of the region is amazing and he showed us the most beautifull spots to visit. And we will never forget how to find the Southern Cross in the sky ;) thanks so much for making our stay memorable Heather and John!

Room Tip: Take some time to look at the trees at night, we spotted several bushbabies during our stay!

My stay with Heather and John was for a business trip in the nearby Game Lodges. Heather and John were beyond words in their helpfulness and kindness. They went the extra mile for a colleagues' birthday and they even gave us some business connections. I felt completely at ease, using the guesthouse as an office in the day and a place for complete relaxation in the evenings, especially with the most beautiful garden! If I am ever in Hazyview, our stay will always be with them!!

Heather & John are wonderful hosts in an incredible guest house. Very spacious rooms in a picturesque setting, it was an absolute pleasure staying at the Laughing Water Guest House. If I have the budget every year to come visit the Kruger, I'll definitely stay here.

Room Tip: Room 3 was magnificent!
