    somewhere to recharge your batteries

    We only stayed overnight, but the experience was wonderful. Even though virtually the middle of Winter, the Accra Bed & Breakfast was an experience that I would love to live over again and again. The views were stunning and the attention from the staff was exceptional. The food was great and we ate dinner next to a open fire place. It was wonderful. I have never seen my partner smile so much.

    Diese Lodge liegt inmitten der Natur und bietet den perfekten Zwischenstopp von Johannesburg zum Krüger Nationalpark (je ca 2.30h). Es ist einfach fantastisch, entspannend und das Abendessen und Frühstück wird mit Liebe zubereitet. Top Lodge!!

    Tolle Unterkunft in den Bergen mit sehr freundlichen und hilfsbereiten Gastgebern. Perfekt für einen kurzen oder auch längeren Zwischenstopp auf dem Weg von Johannesburg zum Krüger oder für einen entspannten Aufenthalt in der Region. Wir behalten den Aufenthalt in bester Erinnerung und bleibe in Kontakt bzw. kommen auch sehr gerne wieder!

    Insgesamt in Ordnung, netter Service, aber das Preis-Leistungs-Verhältnis war nicht angemessen. Dazu eine ärgerliche, überraschende Preiserhöhung vor Ort.
