“Beautiful location... Extremely welcoming family, home from home...........”
Reviewed 26 November 2016 for a stay in November 2016

Friendly and welcoming atmosphere. Nothing is to much for owner and his family, the tours are affordable and well organised, lots of local knowledge. The accomadtion is clean and tidy as is the grounds, beautifully maintained gardens and pool area, taxi service available as well as airport transfers, car rental is not essential or advised as everything can be organised through the owned for shopping trips or days out. Not to be missed. We had the best holiday ever at an affordable price.we shall definitely be returning every year.

“Loved it here!!”
Reviewed 18 October 2016 for a stay in August 2016

Me and my other half stayed here for a week in August and the place as a whole is lovely! spacious, friendly staff, manie and astrid are such great people, always wanted to help us in anyway possible. The room we had was ideal for the two of us, kitchen, lounge and bedroom all layed out as one, then a shower/bathroom as well. BBQ outside on the lawn, a swimming pool and a bar / pool table and darts / TV in the front next to the pool. We went here a few nights with other guests and manie who served us. Astrid cooked us breakfast and a curry one night for a small charge. This place is great if you want to relax and escape the city and have a peaceful break. I would recommend having a hire car if you stay here though as it is a little out of the way of most things and probably 15 minute drive to nearest set of shops / supermarkets. We did hire a car so we was able to go to where we wanted as it was in the middle of quite a few places we drove to. Next time we go to South Africa we would like to stay here again.

Liked best: Manie and Astrid, and how peaceful the place was.
Liked least: location as without a car would be limited to what you can do.

It was a beautiful and tranquil place. Really good for those who want to escape city life. Enjoyed our stay here and really appreciated the warm welcome from Marnie and his wife.

“A good time had by all”
Reviewed 28 October 2015 for a stay in September 2015

The accommodation was clean and practical. The house had 2 bedrooms with ensuite bathrooms, a well equipped kitchen and large living dining space. The house was located so that we were able to use the private drive, but had access to the Astrid and Mannie’s house by walking through the large garden. There was a lovely little swimming pool and seating area that the whole family enjoyed. The garden next to our house was large with garden furniture and shady trees so we enjoyed eating outside most evenings.

Astrid and Mannie were lovely, they gave us our space to enjoy the house as a holiday home but were approachable with queries and organised or recommended places. We also loved hearing all the stories that they shared with us during a drink one Sunday afternoon.

The accommodation is in a good location with local shops, near a game reserve and a 45 min drive from Hartsbeeport Dam. I would highly recommend booking a drive at Dinoking, a game reserve which is a 15 minute drive from the accommodation. This was recommended and booked by Mannie and is one of my favourite experiences of visiting South Africa.

Our children enjoyed all the animals that came with the house. They liked the cats, made friends with the very friendly dog Rambo and enjoyed watching the really stubborn toads that would sit in the cat’s water bowl and refuse to move.

A good time had by all, using the house to chill out after big day trips each day.

“great quality for the price you pay with amazing service”

I stayed here several times and did 5 different tours including the 3 day Kruger trip.

The apartment has everything you need for a nice quiet stay. No TV (unless you specify during your booking) but telephone/internet reception in the garden. You also get use of the pool, the terrace and garden area and the braai (BBQ) area. There is a lovely little bar where you can have a drink and if you order a day in advance you can get delicious and very cheap food (if you don't feel like cooking in your own kitchen). Ask the owner and he will arrange a traditional African Braai for you.
There is parking next to your room or if you don't have a car they will arrange airport pick ups and take you on any tours or shopping trips you feel like for a very reasonable rate.

They arrange several different day trips in the area and 3 or 4 day trips farther afield. I did the Kruger trip and it was amazing. Chris is a very safe driver and can spot animals from miles away. He also has great back ground information on the animals you spot. Depending on how far in advance you book they can arrange accommodation inside Kruger or just outside of Kruger for you. You will have an amazing time.

Every one at Bosveld is super flexible and friendly so whatever will make your holiday better for you, just ask and if it is possible they will be happy to arrange it for you.
