Whisteltree Lodge in the Queenswood suburb of Pretoria, South Africa is an oasis of tranquility, charming appointments, and exquisite hospitality. Once the former site of a British Army depot during the Boer War, it has a history harkening back to a "scandalous" tryst between a certain Lady Sumnersville and a British Army LT Brown.

We stayed here as a stopover en route to KZN from Madikwe Game Reserve. It turned out to be a highlight of our trip. The rooms are spacious and filled with fascinating memorabilia of the Boer War.

This lodge is absolutely fantastic, and is supremely comfortable. I decided to stay at Whistletree on route from Johannesburg to the Kruger National Park, and I was not disappointed. Many of my family members reside in Pretoria, and it was perfectly located for me to visit everyone, and then hit the N4 to Nelspruit, and ultimately Kruger. The rooms are... More
