We stayed for a couple of nights whilst visiting the Sani Pass - Meg and Chris were very welcoming hosts and arranged our Lesotho/Sani Pass tour for us as well as sharing information on other things to do in the area. The rooms were clean and comfortable, breakfast was tasty and plentiful and the surroundings were really pretty and peaceful.... More

My wife was attending a photographic workshop in Himeville and I accompanied her. The first thing to note was just how welcoming and accommodating Meg and Chris were as hosts. The photographic workshop started early and we arrived back at Albizia House after the time set for breakfast, but that was no problem and a sumptuous breakfast awaited us. Our... More

Thoroughly enjoyed our two day stay in Himeville. We were very well treated, very well fed and very comfortable. Chris was an excellent guide on our trip up the Sani Pass, what a driver! If you are asked to sit in the arm chair for breakfast be sure to ask whether you have passed the 'plonk test'.

Thanks Meg . No dinner available but the... More

We (2) were heading to Golden Gate NP and dropped in at Himeville for a two day stop over without any planning. But with Meg and Chris the obligatory trip to Sani Pass was organised in a minute. Chris was our excellent tour guide, which aside the "touristic topics" gave the opportunity to exchange some more thoughts and views ...... More

Comfortable, welcoming B&B. Chris and Meg were great hosts and were helpful in organising a Sani Pass trip. Breakfast was good. Lovely garden and patio. Room was comfortable and had all we needed. Good value for money.

There was a mix up with the dates of our stay,but no problem..Chris sort it out from Limpopo! He phoned Meg and sister-in-law. Within less than a hour we entered the guesthouse. We stayed for one night, but will surely come back. Meg prepared tea and coffee from the house to welcome us. Meg informed us about the blasting times... More
