Very neat, spacious and tidy room. Breakfast service is excellent. Phil and Margi are very helpful in giving local advice such as best restaurants and places to go. Only 12km to Kruger National Park gate.

Beautiful, spacious room that was wonderfully comfortable and very well equipped and furnished. Obvious that a great deal of thought went into designing the rooms and associated facilities to give guests a top class stay. Stunning setting in lush green grounds. Fabulous breakfast and lovely hosts. Excellent location for the Kruger which is an easy 10 minute drive away and...

Excellent accommodation, fantastic breakfasts and friendly hosts made this a wonderful seven night stay. Location is convenient to Kruger Park and Blyde River Canyon. Just be sure to take the R40 from Nelspruit (especially at the Casterbridge roundabout) for a better, safer road and most scenic route.

We had a delightful stay at this amazing place and can highly recommend this for anyone that is going for South Africa in order to visit the kruger park and/or do the panorama route. It is very close to the Phabeni Gate (south region of the park, lots of animals to see) and also very close to do a selfdrive...

We were very warmly welcomed back by the lovely Phil and Margi. The rooms are amazing; spacious, spotlessly clean with everything you could wish for and the most comfortable bed you will find anywhere. Phil and Margi are the perfect hosts, so friendly and informative and having stayed with them last year, wouldn't consider staying anywhere else in Hazyview. We...

South Africa has some very good B&Bs and this is one of them. Philip and Margi were the perfect hosts. They were friendly and helpful without being suffocating which suited us. The spacious lodge is situated in a lush garden with its own private patio and the well equipped kitchen allowed us to have a few relaxing meals without the...
