Great base in the Hazyview area
We booked a honeymoon rondavel, and appreciated the extra space this gave, including kitchenette and braai/bbq facilities. The gardens make for a wonderful setting and we enjoyed relaxing at the poolside. Next to a macadamia nut farm, next door’s upmarket farm shop sold great macadamia ice creams and produce. Owners and staff were very welcoming and we have no hesitation in recommending this as a base from which to have easy access to Kruger National Park and explore the area.
