We had a great stay in Kingfisher Country House, were welcomed with tea and muffins on the veranda. The room was big with an extra sitting area besides. Beds were comfortable. The buffet breakfast was very good with hot and cold dishes. You sit on a veranda with a lot of birds right beside you including Knysna Loerie. Sue and...

This guesthouse is highly recommended. Phil and especially Sue are the best hosts. Sue is like your mother away from home. She makes the best breakfast with great home-made muffins! The rooms are kept very clean and even your clothes are ironed when you are away. No, its not a modern hotel with modern rooms, but that is part of...

A birders paradise plus wonderful comfortable accommodation. Sue and Phil are such wonderful interesting and knowledgeable people. The breakfast were the best we had during our 26 day stay in South Africa. Will definitely be going back.

January's visit was one of many return trips to Wilderness - we just can't stay away. Not only is Wilderness a great place for birding, walking, canoeing etc but, at Kingfisher Country House, Sue & Phil always go that extra mile to make a stay with them very special. Their flair for making rooms pretty, comfortable & homely coupled with...

Sitting on the stoep having breakfast and seeing all the birds come in to Sue's feeders is just lovely. The huge range of birds Sue attracts are practically tame..... Great breakfasts, enough for the day, with muffins straight from the oven to take out. Mmmmm

We loved having breakfast within touching distance of forest birds, especially the briliantly coloured Knysa Lourie, and bushbuck wandering through the garden. Our room was large and airy with our own outside door and stoep to interact with passing wildfoul. Our hosts, Sue and Phil, were attentive and knowledgable - advising on local things to do and the environment. The...

Our hosts were very friendly (we celebrated New Year with them!), the rooms were grand, breakfast was extensive and delicious, the surroundings are beautiful with exotic birds eating next to you! It was the best guesthouse we have ever had! Charming place.

Having first stayed at Kingfisher Country House in 2014 it was firmly on our list for when we returned to South Africa in 2016, this time with our children. We had high expectations which were exceeded by the quality of the rooms and the hosting of Sue and Phil. Yet again we were made to feel welcome and at home....
