Very close and convenient to Hoedspruit Airport (about 5 min)
It’s a big lovely manor type house with rooms in the main house (I think) and another external house, gathering living room type spaces, a nice pool backyard area.
I think they are their own smaller game reserve, but we didn’t do a drive there. This is a good place to book just a room w/o drives included for much less. They “dehorn” their rhinos to prevent against poaching. There’s great debate on this subject. It WAS cool to see 4 rhinos at the waterhole during breakfast on the first day of our trip and also first day of 2019.
A full 3 course dinner is supposed to be included in nightly rate, but we stayed over NYE & they had a party.... which sounded nice, but instead of a proper dinner, we were just served finger foods (after 2 days of traveling).
We were invited to the manor’s NYE party, where we were offered drinks, so we were a bit surprised to get charged for them at check out.
The rooms we had were lovely (rooms 3 & 4). we were not in the main house, but in an additional wing.
Especially Loved the decor of the bathrooms. We had a family room which was MUCH more space than my son & I needed. There was a living room, a sort of dining room with antiques, 2 bedrooms with comfy beds and 2 bathrooms.
The Staff was very friendly & helpful. We loved the tortoise that strolls along the grounds.
Great spot for massages overlooking watering whole, lovely & refreshing pool & common sitting area
