We had an absolute wonderful stay and Gail was just amazing. She made our stay very comfortable. We will definitely stay there again. The fact that we could access our room at anytime was also great. It's a beautiful place

We vivisted the Guest House Pongola in Dec 2016. The rooms were nice and clean. The beds were comfortable. The staff were very helpful and accomodating. The guest house is perfect for an overnight stay.

We had a great overnight stay at The Guest House on our way to Mozambique. Rooms are neat with all you need. We had a great breakfast before leaving. There is enough safe parking for vehicles and trailers.

We had a very good stay in the Guest House Pongola. We arrived late and were very happy that we still could join diner. Breakfast was great too. We could not use the swimming pool because they were working on it.
