The peaceful surrounding of this hidden safari lodge will leave you feeling as if you are in the bush, not Pta. Catering towards all comforts and a great place for kids that includes many activities as well as a petting zoo! For the extra special touch, you can have a cheetah deliver your rings to you down the aisle! Amazing... More

I went to the Farm Inn for Dinner on the 30th December 2014. We were the only guests (6 in Total) in the restaurant. The service was incredibly slow and the food was very average. I know people will say that this is because of the date of the booking / maybe the wrong time of the year, however the... More

I was in South Africa for a four day business conference and was pleasantly surprised by The Farm Inn, selected by the event organisers. Each room is unique. This is no cookie cutter hotel. But don't worry - the essentials were all perfect (great bed, top flight bathroom, extra room to relax). The television was the only thing out of... More

Accommodation was a little tired and basic. Internet was patchy. Service was very good and local surroundings amazing. BBQ in the animal sanctuary area was a amazing and trip back in safari vehicles completed the experience. Young tiger and lion cubs magic.

Visited to have dinner with a friend and was surprised with the quality of the food and service of the restaurant. Visited a room that was very good and the staff was great. I had a Madagascar pepper steak that was just perfect. The restaurant personnel were also great and a pleasure.

The hotel grounds were nice, but the animal side of things seemed to me like a run-down backwoods zoo. The rooms were nice, but the senior staff left a little to be desired. My room was inexplicably cancelled halfway through my stay, and I was left scrambling to find a new place to stay after being told over lunch that... More

I was there on a workshop/ conference. We were very busy and dead tired at the end of the day. I was booked into a room that was very far from the main buildings and it was a experience having to take the walk back to your room in the dark with the lion camps right there. The first night... More

Basically a zoo, and not really a "wildlife sanctuary", but different for Pretoria. If you want to see animals in the wild, this is not the place... If you want to see Lions sleeping in a cage and an Indian Tiger in a cage, this may be the place for you. Rooms are very old (some may say "rustic"), but... More

Stayed again from 4 to 6 Aug 2014 in this nice hotel. Very spacious room, well equipped. People everywhere very friendly and assistive. Breakfast with broad range of cold and warm dishes, freshly prepared eggs and omeletts. Restaurant offering quality food, can sit outside. Lobby and bar nice places for recoering from working days, will come back again.

We did not sleep over since we stay in Pretoria but we often attend functions and conferences or workshops here and it is a popular venue for that kind of events, if you go by the boards indicating where each group must go. There are lions and other wild animals and the sound of the lion roaring makes you forget... More
