Our hosts Philip and Rita were amazing. What a treat. The accomodation was stunning and the attention to detail made it even more spescial. We fell in love with Wakkerstroom and all the people. We will definitely go back.

We only stopped off here on the way to the coast but were pleasantly surprised by what we found. The property is in a beautiful location overlooking a damn with loads of birds to see. The rooms are wonderful with double baths and log fires.

We thoroughly enjoyed our visit. Very comfortable accommodation with a nice country atmosphere. The fireplace was a big plus! Beautiful grounds with stunning views. The breakfast was amazing and the managing couple were charming and helpful

This is our stop over whenever we have been to the parks back and on our way back to Pietermaritzburg. Friendly hosts. Lovely rooms, good kitchenette for self catering, fireplace (a must for winter). The breakfasts are tasty.

The Wetlands sheds are cosy in winter and cool in summer. We have stayed there five times over the last two years and if I could I would go every weekend and holiday. Rieta and Phillip are kind, generous friendly hosts who become like family. The sheds are clean, well maintained and have ample space. Wakkerstroom is like a little... More

We had one of the bedrooms, overlooking the dam. Wakkerstroom is a gem of a place, and when we return, we will definitely stay at Wetlands. The room was extremely comfortable, with a gorgeous view, and welcoming hosts.

Sadly we couldn't book the whole of Wetlands as some rooms were already booked for the Classical music Weekend. Out of our group of 23 mountain cyclists (with a love of classical music) 11 of us stayed at Wetlands. Everyone loved it as it is beautifully decorated and surrounded by lush gardens. All 23 of us met up for meals... More

We booked two shed rooms and one bedroom. My parents and my sister stayed in the shed rooms; my husband and I in bedroom. Shed rooms are nice and big and very, very beautiful. The owner has excellent taste in furniture and we absolutely loved everything there. It was also nice of them to serve complimentary sherry wine as it... More

We have been before, and because we know the quality of the place, we will keep returning. For us it is a good stop over either to or from KZN to Kruger area. Next time, I would certainly like to stay longer as the birding in the area is world renowned. The sheds are brilliant, and very well appointed. They... More
