So glad we booked into this wonderful guest house en route to Augrabies. It is a great stop over from JHB to the West Coast. The room was stunning, the huge bed so utterly comfortable and luxury line. Swimming pool, location on the golf course and the breakfasts were just what we needed. Highly recommended.

We stayed at the Mongoose over New Years 2013/14. We actually pretty much took the entire place over with extended family etc and we had a great time. The rooms are very nicely decorated, kept extremely clean and the bathrooms are also very attractive and modern. They could do with thicker curtains/blinds to keep out the bright early morning sun...

Mongoose is one of the best bnb's I have ever had the pleasure of staying in. I travel frequently for work, to some rather small places and I was really pleasantly surprised when I stayed here! The rooms are stunning and very spacious, the breakfast is delicious (be sure to try the croissants) and the whole bnb just is beautifully... More

The Mongoose Guesthouse is one of the most comfortable places I have stayed. It is uniquely located in the Kalahari Camel Thorn Tree Forest. The property is beautiful and very quiet. The rooms are large and open. The service is top notch and the breakfasts are exceptional.

This is what I need in a guesthouse. The rooms are enormous, the semi-openplan bathroom is stunning (toilet closed off) and the finishes are beautiful and earthy. The bed is comfortable and the views are amazing. Nestled in an ancient thorntree forest and surrounded by one of the most surreal golf courses, this is an amazing place to stay.

There is only one guesthouse that I would willingly stay at for weeks on end - Mongoose. The setting is ideal - a camelthorn tree forest - and the guesthouse is luxuriously comfortable. The large rooms are beautifully decorated: queen size beds; good quality cotton sheets; a writing desk; crete-stone floors; chandeliers; shower and bath; large glass doors and windows... More

Mongoose Guest House is the ideal stopover on your way to the Richtersveld, the Fish River Canyon or the south of Namibia. I have stayed there a number of times and the standard of accommodation and hospitality has been consistently high. I love walking the Camel Thorn forest that covers most of the golf estate the guest house is located... More

Our expectations was high after viewing Mongoose Homepage. But everything was just so much better than expected. The location is at one of South Africa's most beautiful golf courses. The guest house building and the rooms are beautiful. The bathroom is big and have everything you need. The owners and the staff are very helpful. Break fast is served in... More

The scenery is spectacular and the accommodation nestled between the thorn trees on the fairway is serene. The room is large, the finishes luxurious and the decor and design beautiful. A fantastic place for business people who expect more than just a bed for the night. A must for holiday travellers as well.
