This is really a great place to stay. The hosts are very friendly and go the extra mile to make every visitor feel welcome and special. The rooms are beautiful and you have everything you need. The fireplace in the room is really special. Lot of small things that make it a memorable stay. Sherry at the fireplace, candles in... More

This was definitely one of our most memorable stays in South Africa. Jill is an excellent host (one of the best we've ever experienced) and went out of her way to make us feel welcome and special. It was my husband's birthday as well as my friend's birthday and Jill made sure that they were celebrated with flowers, bubbly, nougat... More

I took a group of birdwatchers to stay here last month for 2 nights, 14 people in total spread between all the accommodations. Not only were all of the rooms were of the highest standard (we stayed in the cottage) but the breakfasts were superb and nothing was too much trouble for our hosts, they even arranged for our vans...

5 Friends chose Wetlands as a base to explore the roads of Mpumalanga. We initially booked 2 sheds but ended up being upgraded to the cottage, which featured a well-appointed kitchen. Both bedrooms have both a shower and a bath, with an additional guest toilet. Our 5th member stayed in one of the rooms. The two rooms in the cottage... More

Two of us stayed in the Cottage which in reality is big enough for a couple of small families and likely larger than the houses of many who stay there. There are two well separated bedrooms (one on each side of the living room) each with its own full bathroom with both tub and shower. The living room and kitchen... More

We have stayed three times at Wetlands Country House and have enjoyed wonderful hospitality each time. This last time we stayed in room 3 overlooking the dam and enjoyed superb views of birds coming in to roost in the evening. On previous occasions we have stayed in the sheds which are very well equipped for self catering. All are clean... More

Wetlands Country House is beautiful - the accomodation is very clean and comfortable and the rooms are well equipped, and the breakfast buffet is wonderful. The customer service is outstanding as well. This is the ideal place to go bird watching or just for a nice break. Wetlands elevates bed and breakfast to a whole new level. We would love... More

Very comfortable accommodation with a great location and super hospitality. The best place to stay in Wakkerstroom! I will definitely stay here again. The range of accommodation is good giving options for couples, families or groups of friends.

Thanks Phil and Rita for going out of your way to make us relax. Stayed for 2 nights in double family room which were well furnished and had fireplaces in each room - essential for a winter stay. Breakfast was excellent and service was exceptional. Great base to explore area and also able to cycle or walk.

We stayed for 3 nights in one of the smaller sheds - but don't be mislead by the description. It is beautifully furnished. There was a fireplace stacked with wood - only we did have the time to fully enjoyed it. The electric blankets were welcomed for a quicker way of warming the bed. The location/surroundings make this place a... More
