Anny Day – Baywater Village
We had an awesome time at Baywater Village. The staff were amazingly friendly and went out of their way to assist us where possible, I was impressed. The Units are spotless. There is a lot of activities for kids. This really is an awesome family Resort. We had a 5-star experience. Thank you Baywater Village, it was worth the 5-hour drive.
David Grant – Caribbean Estates
Well run Resort, neat and tidy.
Isabel Phiri – Crystal Springs Mountain Lodge
This is my 6th time coming to the Lodge and it continues to take my breath away, when I drive through from the gate to Reception to my allocated Unit. If you love tranquillity and the sound of nature, this is the place to add to your bucket list. I love it!
Peter Miller – Kagga Kamma
Outstanding experience. Peace and tranquility and amazing stargazing. Could be cold at night, even in Summer as it is located at fairly high altitude. Excellent choice of accommodation which includes Chalets, Huts, Camping and Cave dwelling. Good selection of game, flora and fauna drives and stargazing trips.
Carmel Singh – Kridzil
Absolutely, love this place! Super friendly staff! Clean and inviting Unit with beautiful sea views, a short walk and you’re on the beach. Definitely, a place we will be back to stay at. Fast food and shops around the corner - conveniently located.
Wesley-Ray Fawell – Little Eden
Exceptional experience! Amazing views, walking trails and entertainment area, close to Pretoria. Perfect for a weekend getaway.
rafique2021 – Mabalingwe Nature Reserve
The remoteness of the property is its biggest asset, as you are about a 30 minute drive from the main Lodge. Allows you to just unwind and enjoy the bush. The kids loved the Hot Tub and Games Room. Incredible views from the very large balcony.
Marlisa Bothma4t – Manzi Monaté
Awesome back to nature atmosphere. Staff exceptionally friendly. Money well spent for a relaxing weekend away. Don’t have to drive to far if you live in Pretoria/Johannesburg.
Viola Kubo - Mnarani beach Resort
Mnarani Beach Club is an excellent beach getaway in Kilifi for a traveller looking for a retreat to enjoy the sun, sand, peace and tranquility and the simplicity of a wonderful holiday. The staff are friendly and the meals fresh and delicious. Lots of sea activities to do and beautiful views of the ocean and Kilifi bridge. Totally love Mnarani Beach Club and recommend it highly.
Anni Campbell - Monateng Safari Lodge
For a break away from busyness and stress, this is a superb Resort where peace and quiet prevail! We only stayed for the weekend and were very sad that it was not for a full week. The Resort is very well-maintained and service is delivered with a smile. It looks as though the staff are happy to work there!

A really nice holiday Resort on the South Coast. Close to the Wild Coast Casino and entertainment. Units are very nice and fully furnished for the perfect self-catering vacation.
Julia Malogadihlare – Crystal Springs
It's a beautiful place; a home-away-from-home. The view of the mountains and bushes are beautiful, and the welcoming from the reception staff was fantastic. I enjoyed the pampering at the Hot Tub, Sauna and the Steam Room. The food at the Restaurant was absolutely delicious. There is also a store to buy essentials, so you don't have to drive far for that. I would definitely love to go back!
Sven Garz – Kridzil
Friendly, flexible, and helpful staff. Great views. The Resort is conveniently located.

Mr and Mrs Berndt - Kagga Kamma
My husband and I eloped to Kagga Kamma and had the most wonderful experience. The place is rugged, yet so beautiful and peaceful. The staff go out of their way to make you feel so special and to make your trip memorable. The food is delicious, the rooms are perfect, the staff members are incredible and the guides are knowledgeable and fun! There are various activities to do while you're there, but you can also relax by the pool quite happily. We went in March and it was pretty hot - 33-36 degrees most days, however the rooms are air-conditioned. Kagga Kamma is a unique place and definitely worth a visit. A truly incredible experience!
Vannessa Pillay - Manzi Monate
Absolutely relaxing Resort and the staff are amazing.
Kristy - Mabalingwe
Such a fantastic getaway for my family and I. Stayed in a fully furnished house with 5 bedrooms to accommodate my family, had warthogs coming right up to our door, and seeing the buck so close up too was so special. Lovely place. Huge thumbs up. Will definitely be back soon.
Wanderer58484 - Mount Amanzi
Excellent! I enjoyed my stay and will definitely go back there. It is close to my home, so I enjoyed the short travelling distance. The facility is clean and well maintained and the staff was very accommodating and helpful. My family and I would definitely recommend the Resort.

This was our second visit to Monateng and it was fantastic. I would recommend this to all people looking for a fun filled holiday. The staff members are extremely friendly and the facilities are 5 star value.

thulani_sibiya - Uvongo
"Awesome experience, from the time we checked in. Security guard already was aware of us and was on the alert, He went as far as alerting the Reception that we were already at the gate, and by the time we arrived at the reception the staff was already waiting for us . Very Professional and friendly Staff. Everyone takes ownership of their work." – January 2018 (TripAdviser)
357leonb - Uvongo

A crisp taste of nature and a perfect getaway to unwind and get away from the city. We certainly enjoyed our stay and we will definitely make our way there again.
moliza2017 - Crystal Springs
A place to call home. Beautiful Chalets, clean surroundings, clean linen, beautiful furniture, lots of activities for young and old…Will go again and again if I really need to relax. Ohh! What a refreshing place in the country if we can be allowed to bring out own smart card' it will be a bonus. (TripAdvisor)
Carried258 - Crystal Springs
Great View. Tons to keep you busy at Crystal Springs and its surroundings. The Chalets are clean and well kept. They offer a game drive, which is very informative and worth experiencing. Saw zebras and other animals walking past the chalets in the evenings. Definitely enjoyed the stay. (TripAdvisor)
Rooksana Conradie - Crystal Springs
Beautiful scenery, peaceful, tranquillity. Most enjoyable for kids and adults....Trails, Jacuzzi, gym...jungle gym, swings. Safari…God's Window… Beyond Words
ThaboS - Crystal Springs
Family Getaway. Wow, the place is heavenly beautiful; the lady at Reception (Khomotso) was friendly and she assisted us with places that we can…A big thanks. The house keeper was also friendly (Richard). Big up. (TripAdvisor)
Charis Arumugam - Crystal Springs
Most breathtaking views. The most relaxing destination. (Facebook)
Leon Olinsky - Crystal Springs
What an awesome experience. One week was not enough for me and my family to enjoy all the surrounding scenery and places. The food at Crystal Springs [Le Fera] Restaurant was great and the service even better. I found it to be a well situated centralised site that caters for everyone's interests. It will include quick drives to points of interest such as Mac Mac pools, Bourke's Luck, Echo Caves to name a few. Hiking trails, mountain biking, swimming, tennis, putt-putt or game drives at Crystal Springs are also available. Overall, I need at least another two weeks to do everything there is to offer. Highly recommended.
Firemangp - Crystal Springs
Crystal Springs – Perfect to Get Away for Relaxation. The accommodation, amenities and overall experience at this Resort is awesome. The units are well kept, pristine, well-located and perfectly maintained. The perfect destination to get away from city-life. Highly recommended for rest and relaxation. (TripAdvisor)
chebelm - Crystal Springs
I cannot emphasize enough of the splendour and top class treatment received; one of the best resorts ever visited…if not the best. Beautiful chalets with top of the range equipment and comfort; simply magnificent and very friendly staff. (TripAdvisor)
Marinde Kotze - Manzi Monate
Loved every second. Great week with friendly staff. Everything neat and clean. Grandkids loved the activities for children. The staff made everything enjoyable and interesting for them. Thanks!
Martie Grobler - Manzi Monate
Manzi Monate is n oulike oord wat n klip gooi van Johanbesburg af is. Skoon en netjies pragtige blyplekkies. Mensies wat daar werk is deeglik en hoflik sal beslis die oord aanbeveel.
Malehlohonolo Ntsane - Manzi Monate
Wonderful place to be for some quite time; who would have thought we have places like this just around the corner... I cannot fault anything.
Chrishenda Thomas - Manzi Monate
Great place for a break away from the busy life in Johnnesburg will most definitely come back again, clean, neat and great service.
Marthie Van Vuuren Botes - Manzi Monate
My husband and I will be visiting often; really like it there, so peaceful and beautiful. Staff very friendly.
Leah Kgomo - Manzi Monate
Manzi Monate is the place to be. It's neat, rooms are clean and fresh air. When it comes to kids it is number one. They have everything for kids. All games are there. Volleyball, tennis, golf, swimming pools… I will be coming back soon.
Le Too – Uvongo
Absolutely loved the Resort ... the unit I stayed in was massive and I really didn't expect it to be that big; big ups to the security staff at the Entrance – they definitely get a 10 over [out of] 10 from me.
Johannes Xaba – Uvongo
It was so good to be at Uvongo River Resort and we enjoyed being among those who get that experience; keep it up guys.
Liscka Naidoo – Uvongo
Absolutely amazing; we could have not been happier. The overall feel of the place is extremely relaxing. My 3 year old was occupied the whole time we were there. I cannot wait to be back...
Max van Heerden – Uvongo
Awesome thank you so much for your service and advice.
Jen Terblanche – Sudwala Lodge
I loved it there. It was so peaceful and was well maintained and very clean. I will recommend it to other family and friends.
Adriaan Botha – Sudwala Lodge
Nice and peaceful. You are in touch with nature and you relax in the quietness.
Netty Muchenje – Sudwala Lodge
I love this place! I like where it is situated! Away from our everyday lives area! Definitely would love coming again! Staff so friendly, loved the braai! Gym!
Joey Moima – Sudwala Lodge
I loved my stay and enjoyed the scenery and the trail walk.
Reyaadg – Kagga Kamma
My wife surprised me with a stay at this little gem in the middle of nowhere. It was a birthday gift and what a wonderful place to celebrate. Staff was very friendly and we were allowed an early check-in. The Sundowner Trip was awesome –highlights the remote location and emphasises the peace and tranquillity. Being New Year's Eve the staff went out of their way to make the evening fun and special. A braai buffet was laid out in the Boma and a DJ played music to see [us] in[to] the New Year. They even arranged a complimentary birthday cake. There is no cell phone reception or TV in rooms. Limited WI-FI at Reception. This adds to the magical feeling of a complete break away from the hustle and bustle of city life. We did the 4 km Hike route and would advise this. Get to see the lovely rock formations. Would love to return in the winter some time and also try the Open Air Room. Thanks Tania [Resort Manager] and team, for a lovely stay. Room Tip: go for the Huts - little more space. Would love to try the Open Air Room some time. (TripAdvisor)
Tyrone James Ping – Kagga Kamma
An incredible and unique experience. We stayed in the Cave rooms, whilst we spent very little time in our actual rooms with such spectacular facilities and scenery you wouldn't want to waste the day away in your room. Really enjoyed the Morning, Sundowner and Evening Game Drives. There aren't many large animals to be seen but the smaller animals are fascinating; the Rock Painting Tour is a must too. The night skies are spectacular too! Great meals which cater specifically for vegetarians and vegans, which is a welcome change! Can't wait to go back.
Skye Littlefield – Kagga Kamma
Kagga Kamma is unlike anywhere I have stayed within South Africa. The landscape and the Lodge are both exceptionally beautiful. The food was delicious, and there were full menus for both vegetarians and vegans. The Game Drives take you to some of the most beautiful spots on the Reserve with incredibly gorgeous views. We were lucky enough to see an abundance of game as well as smaller creatures such as snakes and Armadillo lizards. I'd go back in a heartbeat.
sandrawatson333 – Kagga Kamma
We arrived at the Reserve at 8.15 pm after a four hour drive from Cape Town. The road is good, and even the last section wasn't too bad. And the sunset! This is an extraordinary place. The name means "place of rocks [water]", apparently, and it is. There is a good pool (refreshingly cold) where you can see San paintings and "talk" to the visiting hyrax. The chalets are located with privacy in mind; very roomy, with excellent kitchen facilities. The bathrooms were small. We saw some game, and an African wildcat through our window. The Resort offers night drives, talks and outdoor eating at the Restaurant. All under that amazing star-filled sky (we Aussies could easily find our Southern Cross). Hint: Make sure you arrive before the park gates close. (TripAdvisor)
Bianca Lewis – Kagga Kamma
We had a lovely time at Kagga Kamma! The staff is friendly and very helpful. The bushmen [San] and Sundowner excursions were amazing. The views on the hill were breathtakingly beautiful! There is no cell phone reception and no TV just peace and quiet – pure bliss. The rocks are so beautiful and unique, photographs doesn't do any justice. The night sky is just as beautiful as much more stars can be seen. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay. Kagga Kamma is definitely a must! Thank you!
Flavia Elisa – Kagga Kamma
I would just like to say the BIGGEST thank you to the amazing, amazing staff at Kagga Kamma! My trip was unfortunately cut short when I had a fall and injured my fingers but the staff was absolutely incredible and so, so helpful! Thank you all for being so caring and doing everything you could to make me feel comfortable and looked after! Although my trip was cut short I had an unforgettable time at Kagga Kamma and will definitely be back again soon! Highly recommended!
Nedine Otto – Kagga Kamma
The perfect place to find some peace of mind, amidst beautiful scenery, excellent food, and the friendliest staff in the country.
Michelle van der Merwe – Ekuthuleni
Just came back from a midweek break at Ekuthuleni; what an awesome time so glad to have discovered this wonderful resort; peaceful and absolute rest for my soul …already looking for dates for my next visit … wonderful place.
Debbi-Ann Jv Rensburg Viljoen – Monateng
Thank you Monateng Management personnel for making Emwi en Manie Viljoen's birthday so special.
Dee Dixon – Monateng
Thank you Monateng for an unforgettable getaway!
Holms14 – Monateng
Stayed at Monateng for four nights in the middle of January. Very impressed with the accommodation, the grounds and the entertainment area. It was our first visit but will not be our last. From booking in to leaving, it was a pleasure to deal with such friendly people. (TripAdvisor)
fs30 – Ngwenya
Breath-taking river views from HB 01, located so close to the river, you can hear the rapids. Wildlife at your doorstep. Well-appointed unit, spacious, clean and comfortable. Four bedrooms and four bathrooms, with washing machine and dryer. This Resort just never fails to entertain both children and adults. Friendly and courteous staff. We will always return! (TripAdvisor)
OBwun2014 – Ngwenya
The self-catering chalet we stayed in overlooks the River and sleeps Eight – three bedrooms, two bathrooms, one en suite; kitchen, dining, lounge and covered patio with braai. Cleaning service every day except Sunday, but you can pay extra if you require that as well. The rooms are all air conditioned and also have ceiling fans. There are a few swimming pools on the grounds, with a shop for essentials, laundry if you need, children's room, games, putt-putt, trampolines, and even tennis courts. The [Le Fera] Restaurant and Bar are overlooking the River, if you feel the need not to cook. The highlight of the position being on the River is that the Kruger Park starts at the edge of our balcony, so wild life can be directly under where you are standing. Looking over the River we often saw Elephant, lots of Buck and even Rhino, a vast assortment of bird life as well. It is about 8km to the Crocodile Bridge Entrance into the Kruger Park, so up and off early into the Park is a must. This year we were very lucky in the Park as we actually saw all of the Big Five and much more. The highlight of the trip being a Cheetah and her cubs and the rarest sighting of all was a Honey Badger. If you get the opportunity to go, then I would highly recommend this as a destination. Room Tip: Try and get a chalet on the river. (TripAdvisor)
Kobus P – Ngwenya
This place is a wonderful place to stay. Good and friendly reception. This was our fifth visit to the Lodge. Accommodation excellent. Nice walkways between the houses and next to the River good hideaways to watch the animals and birds. The gardens are beautiful and swimming pools are sparkling and inviting. A place to be when you want to relax from all your troubles and work stress. (TripAdvisor)
Eldridge S – Ngwenya
This is a place for everyone... let me start with the arrival, the Reception area is neat and on our arrival there were welcome drinks and refreshments for the kids as well. The unit we stayed in was Unit 443 and what a beautiful and clean place. Our person who cleaned our unit was helpful and friendly her name is Anna (Not Anna Mgomezulu) what a friendly person. The Lodge itself is a place for adults and kids; my two daughters enjoyed themselves to the fullest every day at the Games Room and at the five pools that the Lodge has. We were close to one of the many viewing decks and had a relaxing time there seeing all kinds of animals on the banks of the Crocodile River. Seeing into the Kruger was delightful. Enjoyed waking up every day to the sounds of birds of all kinds. Birdlife abundant. Thanks again to the Ngwenya Staff and Anna for making our stay beautiful. Room Tip: Look for the River facing Units. (TripAdvisor)
Rosanne F – Ngwenya
We visited Ngwenya Lodge for a week. Our unit was well equipped, clean, serviced daily, air-conditioned and so beautifully appointed on the Crocodile River. Access to Kruger National Park was an easy 15 minute drive. When not viewing game we enjoyed walks around the lodge, swimming and viewing game and birds from three hides on the River. Our last meal in their Restaurant was delicious. We will return! Room Tip: River frontage is lovely but units facing ponds are also good. (TripAdvisor)
Yacoobvr – Ngwenya
We visit once or twice a year and love it there. The position of the Lodge and easy access to the Crocodile River Gate is awesome, even just chilling at the Lodge itself … sitting in the hides etc. is so much fun. (TripAdvisor)
paullinde – Ngwenya
We had the most amazing view of the Kruger Park and a 180 degrees of the Crocodile River, hippo, crocodile, elephant, rhino, waterbuck and the most amazing collection of birds all day long. Clean resort, efficient Reception, helpful staff to offload our supplies and provide daily cleaning service. Acceptable restaurant and other amenities. What a fantastic way to relax and recharge for the new year! I will definitely return to this paradise in the bushveld. Room Tip: Upper level facing the river is where I will book again. (TripAdvisor)
postscript65 – Ngwenya
Overlooking the Crocodile River, from which the Resort takes its name; gardens are exceptional and the thatched chalets all have a river or lakeside view. It is mainly for self-catering travellers but there is a Restaurant, several pools, tennis courts and children's entertainment. Great base for the Kruger Park or for the lazy or lucky, the game comes to the River on the opposite bank. (TripAdvisor)
UwaisP – Ngwenya
Was the most revitalising trip ever especially how stunning the scenery was. Our cabin was right by the hide which made it even more stunning. The most amazing thing is that it's directly opposite the Kruger National Park. (TripAdvisor)
Angelika H – Ngwenya
The perfect Resort to book for a Kruger Park visit. We stayed here for seven days in a beautifully two bedroom self-catering unit, with pond view. The Resort offers many pools, tennis courts, mini golf and game viewing hides with lovely walkways. Only 15 minutes away from Crocodile Bridge Gate of the KNP; well worth a visit and stay. We come here every year and have never been disappointed. Room Tip: Pond View Cottages are great, but river view is super for game viewing. (TripAdvisor)
RiichardK – Ngwenya
This is our third visit and still an awesome place. Excellent service and stunning facilities. Restaurant with viewing deck serves the best pizza and breakfasts. Units are well-equipped and clean. The staff is always friendly and helpful. We enjoy the peaceful atmosphere and the wife loves the Spa. Excellent views into the Kruger National Park from the viewpoints. A short drive and you in the Kruger National Park. (TripAdvisor)
Katelstraat – Ngwenya
Ngwenya Lodge is one of those places that give you that special "I'm in Africa" experience. It's on the bank of the Crocodile River looking into the great Kruger National Park. It's very well-equipped for self-catering but also has a great Restaurant. Very, very important to bring a pair of good binoculars otherwise you lose out on great game viewing and bird watching. (TripAdvisor)
Sereya L- Mnarani
We made a stopover to refresh before heading to our destination. The Reception was excellent and good service. Amazing ambiance, we loved the scenery and cool breeze from the ocean. You will love it. (TripAdvisor)
Steve B - Mnarani
From the moment I arrived I had a great welcome from all the staff. I stayed in a spotlessly clean room by The Garden. The pool is the best I have ever seen. Everything is taken care of for you by the lovely staff. Even my boarding pass for my flight home was printed for me by the Reception. I look forward to returning very soon. (TripAdvisor)
Dharmesh108 – Mabalingwe
Spent the weekend at Mabalingwe Nature Reserve; was an amazing experience. Kids enjoyed the place, had lots of activities at the Main Pool area to keep them busy; for the out- doors person, you have the option of a game drive or self-drive through the Reserve. The chalets are a home-away-from-home experience … very spacious with two well-appointed bathrooms, one with shower and one with bath; it has all the amenities required for a home and bush experience. Seen lots of animals at the Reserve and had a close up of the Elephants , what an experience. Room Tip: Kubu Camp or Phiri Camp, overlooking the Kubu Dam has Hippos and Crocs. (TripAdvisor)
PierreBes – Mount Amanzi
I've been going to Mount Amanzi over December, for the past 5 years. It is such a pleasure to get to go to a Resort where some sort of upgrading has been done throughout the year. Every year it's better than the previous. Beautiful, nice, relaxing resort. I especially enjoyed the fishing. Well Done Mount Amanzi Management Team! (TripAdvisor)
Kenneth B – Mount Amanzi
This is a place that is absolutely great for families, just a few hundred yards downstream from the famous Dam; it is basically a camp that contains fully self-contained houses, 4/5/6 berth houses all with bathrooms, kitchens, televisions, braai areas… containing table and chairs for eating; each has parking outside of the houses; the camp has good roads, lighting and is set amongst trees, with water in the shape of a number of dams leading down to the River. There is a small shop on-site, as well as a very good two level Restaurant and Bar; there are numerous facilities for the whole family, as well as children – putting course, giant chess/draughts, indoor and outdoor swimming pools, great for fishing, tennis, or just chilling out. It is also in a good location for getting to all of the attractions that the Hartbeespoort area has. Room Tip: Good location for whatever you want to do. (TripAdvisor)
Carisha D – Crystal Springs
Tons to keep you busy at Crystal Springs and its surroundings. The Chalets are clean and well kept. They offer a game drive, which is very informative and worth experiencing. Saw zebras and other animals walking past the chalets in the evenings. Definitely enjoyed the stay.

Bowden K – Morrumbene
Excellent Resort, units are clean comfortable and well maintained. 4 x 4 a must, beautiful beach, stunning pool; the food is excellent. The staff are so friendly. What I really loved is that it is so quiet here, far away from crowds and hawkers. Lorraine and Hutch are doing a wonderful job in running this place so well. Thank you for a wonderful holiday.
Lizelle Brown - Mount Amanzi
We need a break... can't wait for a week of rest and peace. We have celebrated our first wedding anniversary at Mount Amanzi and also our fifth wedding anniversary. The staff of Mount Amanzi made it extra special. We recently had a beautiful little boy and he will be enjoying his first holiday ever at this wonderful resort. We can't wait to see his little face experiencing the warm water pool.

The hotel was great and the staff were friendly. The restaurant had a menu with plenty of choice and the prices were very reasonable. I would definitely go back. It is located in the beautiful Klein Cederberg and is set in a breathtakingly beautiful environment. - (TripAdvisor)

We stayed in Cave 13, beautiful surroundings, excellent view with a lot of privacy and comfort. The staff were excellent, plenty of hiking trails to choose from. The Bushman drawings are some of the best I have ever seen. - (TripAdvisor)

My heart longs for the sight of a red moon rising, the jackals call, the fiery neck nightjar's 'Good Lord deliver us' and the hippo grunting below the deck. Soon, soon, September's not too far away.
Sue Rawstorne - Ngwenya
Exactly 2 weeks till we there. Leaving is the hardest thing! Very, very sad! Then start dreaming about the next trip!

Stayed in 3 units, Bush Units, for a weekend to celebrate a family birthday. The units were spacious and clean with all we required. The resort had a programme on for the kids to keep them busy. Cleaning staff were pleasant and diligent. We will definitely return to Monateng.
Dsmiff - Monateng
Excellent resort, well kept and spacious. Superb accommodation. Tranquil and good for the soul. Wildlife abundant and pay regular visits to the chalets etc. Close to Pretoria, less than 50km and ± a 30 minute drive. Most beautiful sunsets. - (TripAdvisor)

leilaniedejager – Kagga Kamma
You do not often get a place like Kagga Kamma Lodge in the Cederberg. Although it is a bit far to travel on the gravel road, we did it with our Corsa bakkie several times, with no hassle. We notice that a tractor with scraper keep the road in good condition most of the time. 2016 Christmas day was a very special they for us because my son that travels a lot abroad and was working for several years in the USA, France etc came and visit us and took us for the lunch at the Lodge. This time we travel in style with his car. Lol. What an awesome reception greet us! With nicely decorated ice cold glasses filled with a cocktail fit for a king we was led out to the back lawn under umbrellas till they call us in for the buffet. All the staff was friendly as always and very helpful. All the tables were decorated according to the occasion… even with the candles. Pretty pretty awesome. The display off the food, although small, was very elegant and the hunger took over. The starters - all six of them, was awesome, and cater for every taste. You did not wait for anything and as soon as the first starter plate got their way to the kitchen, the main course appeared. And what a variety! Four stunning meats, seven mouth-watering veggie dishes – all made with extra flair. While we were dining the waitresses were very subtle around you to take care of your needs, even management came by several times to make sure we are okay and if we need anything else. The three desserts were out of the world; especially the creamy cheesecake with berries. As we often visit Kagga Kamma, we see the huge effort these people made to improve from the restrooms right through to the kitchen and dining room. When visiting during the winter there is always a welcoming fire in the bar-lounge that makes you feel at home. We experience the whole transformation that the lodge went through the past year or so. From the buildings inside and out, to the menu. All for the benefit to the guest... This is highly recommended if you want to get away from the hustle and bustle of the city. Nature is on your doorstep and you feel very much part of it. Luxury chalets or camping, the choice is yours. But be sure, it is of the best. From arrival to departing you are taken care of by the friendly staff . Kagga Kamma, this family will come back time after time! (TripAdvisor)
Sandra Brown – Ngwenya Lodge
Thank you Ngwenya once again for a wonderful week of rest and relaxation. The gardens are looking superb, the staff as friendly as allways. The buffet last night was delicious and we somehow managed to get a bird list of 120 species (including those we saw in 2 trips into KNP). What a wonderful week. See you in February!
Tarquin Riaan Burton – Monateng Safari Lodge
Best breakaway ever... Ordering your lunch and enjoying a meal at the pool was awesome. Service and friendliness was great, not forgetting the crocodile farm trip...
Sheryl Paul – Monateng Safari Lodge
We had an 8 year old with us, and she was kept occupied with all you have to offer – the whole weekend. Thank you, Monateng!

Essess Simmy – Crystal Springs
Thank you for making our anniversary so extra special. Our 6th visit to paradise and counting! There is no place like Crystal Springs. The magnificent beauty, the tranquillity, the service and the beautiful units... This is truly our best and favourite holiday destination.
Diane Studdard‎ - Ngwenya Lodge
I would just like to tell you all about the good job you all are doing at Ngwenya. Keep it up... For the past 10 years that we have been going to Ngwenya we have always been happy with our stay, we've had no complains. The units have always been well kept.
Bronwin Wade – Monateng Safari Lodge
"We had an amazing weekend this past weekend. Thank you to everyone at Monateng for amazing service, kind people, something for everyone to do to have fun. Even the security guard was someone who you could easily speak with, or ask for help. I am definitely coming back soon - we found our new favourite camp spot!
Linda Bethlehem – Ngwenya Lodge
I have to congratulate the gardeners at Ngwenya. We have just returned today from a magical week. I can see the hard work that goes into the gardens. Every year it's beautiful but this year they are really stunning. Well done. Every evening we walked around the resort and enjoyed the gardens. Even all the trees have been identified. Thank you, Ngwenya.
Celeste Ras – Monateng Safari Lodge
My husband and I spent this past weekend at your resort and absolutely ADORED it! I just wanted to say thank you to you and all your staff for your friendliness and efficiency. The cleanliness and beauty of your facilities are outstanding! I have told everyone at my work how amazing your place is and we are already planning our next stay there.
Mnarani Club - Anonymous
That some of the staff could speak a little bit of Afrikaans! That was amazing. Even an entertainment group sang an Afrikaans song. All evening entertainment groups were exceptionally good. The South African evening was great with a braai with "pap en vleis". Most enjoyable. Our excursions were well planned by Samira and undertaken by Lawrence and Omar. Your management staff, Henk and Elma is a great couple and is a winner for the resort. They are motivating the staff and residents constantly with their friendliness and goodwill.
"THE PLACE TO BE CRYSTAL SPRINGS" - Lizzie M via TripAdvisor
We went on holiday at Crystal Springs. The place is excellent and very clean. Well-mannered cleaners and the welcoming of guests is excellent. The restaurant sells very delicious food. Everything is perfect and the activities for the week is well planned. Keep it up Crystal Springs you really know how to take care of your visitors.
Pride of Place – Ngwenya Lodge
Good Day When GRC announced in 2011 that VRS was taking over management of Ngwenya Lodge, I was somewhat sceptical to say the least. Since then, after a few initial hiccups, you have shown yourselves to be professional, efficient and more than worthy of the appointment. Congratulations on a job well done! I look forward to your continued good services.
Regards Mr Kim D. Heyes
