We spent the night at the Rain Farm in the Waterbuck. What an amazing experience! We took our 3 children with us and they fished, horse rode and played putt putt. The girls even braved the cold water to swim. The waterbuck unit was lovely and the spa bath was a delight to experience as was the outdoor shower. The... More

We cannot fully describe the wonderful experience we had here - everything was perfect - and we are quite hard to please! The place is beautiful with the most amazing views. The staff are fantastic - so helpful and professional but friendly too - the perfect blend. The food was out of this world - they certainly know good food... More

nice accommodation, and friendly staff but unfortunately the waiter staff were just really under trained. The three mornings that we had breakfast there not one of them did the waiter manage to supply the breakfast as ordered. A small issue but spoilt an otherwise very pleasant stay.

I was a day visitor for the Easter Sunday lunch buffet. In my personal opinion, the lunch was not worth R195.00 per adult and R90.00 a child, with not even 1 soft drink included. We did not see any game roaming around...we were originally placed inside the restaurant which was a bit dark and gloomy..I did ask to be seated... More

Unfortunately, the sparkling service could not make up for the failing of the energy-saving systems installed to cope with high electricity costs and frequent power outrages in SA. We had to re-locate to another chalet at slight inconvenience, due to no hot water in the original room. The dam view rooms are neat and huge, but not luxurious. Limited TV... More

I live exceptionally close to this gem so hadn't really given it a thought as a place to go due to it being literally a stones throw away! Having an overseas visitor who , though not a big game fundi, felt that whilst in Africa one should go & view the wild life I made us a booking for a... More

The Management and staff at Rain Farm know the true meaning of customer service. My son proposed to his long awaiting girl friend on a romantic game drive through rain farm where they had a secluded picnic at the river. Nothing was too much trouble for all the staff involved who made sure that the day was memorable and special.... More

Look, Rainfarm is only graded three stars, so you can't expect more than it advertises. Lovely views, and great deck and pool area. I could sit there for ages in the solitude and just drink it in. In the distance, we saw herds of game running across the hills... beautiful. The food was good... divine sauces and oh so delicious... More
