We stayed at The Wetlands in April on our way back from Safari in Kruger National Park with Lawson's Tours. We stayed two nights and were very comfortable in their guest house and enjoyed lovely breakfasts as part of our room charge.

While this property is a bit off the beaten track, it is well worth the trip to get there. Rooms are HUGE, bathrooms are spacious, service is wonderful. Loved the small decanter of sherry in the room for an after dinner aperitif. They also serve a full wonderful breakfast with both hot and cold items. As a birder, staying there...

Ten intrepid birders stayed a couple of nights, and we loved it. Great beds, shower, and the Best Breakfast of the entire 20 day trip. Plenty to see in the area, and wish we could have stayed longer. Really lovely! Oh, there is a great restaurant in town for the evening meal. I think it is called Metamorphos. It, too,...

Stunning little place, very quaint - nice and private. I was very surprised to see all the smaller things taken care of. The staff waited until very late for us to arrive and were warm and welcoming. Thank you for your warm hospitality - we will most certainly be back.
