Many, many thanks to Ute and Felix for making us so welcome. First class accommodation and extremely relaxing. Sabie is a lovely town. Cindy and Ian are very lucky to live a little closer (few thousand miles closer) than we do.

A very pleasant stay at the start of this South Africa trip. Felix and Ute are outstanding hosts, going out of their way to make guests feel at home. Comfortable rooms and bathrooms. Very nice breakfast, served on the terrace with a view on the lush garden. An unexpected extra: Felix has his own roast of coffee .... wonderful.

On our trip to Kruger Park we stayed for 2 nights at the wonderful guesthouse of Ute and Felix. It was absolutely amazing. Clean rooms, superb breakfast - who says men can't cook ;-)) - and also the knowledge of Felix about the Panorama Route was great. We can absolutely recommend this place for your stay.
