As we arrived we were not sure what to expect but once inside the gates we were met by Sue and the dogs and immediately felt at home. We were looking for a quite place just to be able to relax from a very stressful work load and boy did we find it. We spent a very laid-back Saturday Morning... More

We spent 4 nights at the lodge and enjoyed every minute of it. The rustic charm of the lodge is exactly the escape we needed from the chaos of JHB. we only had breakfasts while there but they were absolutely amazing. The staff are all so friendly and ready to answer any questions we had.

The enviroment is beautiful,quite and calm. A perfect spot to unwind, recouperate and relax - with birds waking u in the morning and a calming sound of the river flowing jst below your Cabin. The food and massages are to die for. We left feeling relaxed and great. It is th best place to be, away from the City noise.😍😍😍😍

We spent the weekend at the Treehouse river lodge, and came away so well rested - just what a parent of 2 needs! The accommodation is nestled in the trees, with an awesome view of the river and some fantastic bird life. Braai facilities are private, but do allow you to interact with your neighbours if you want. Sue and... More

We spent two nights and came away feeling relaxed and refreshed, hard to believe there is a place so peaceful and friendly so close to the hustle and bustle of Hillcrest. So much bird life and you feel like you are miles away from the nearest city. Loved it! See you soon!
