Quaint little cabin on the river bank with the most wonderful view. Interior was beautiful: the linen, scatter cushions, drapes, all obviously carefully selected.

Having come from Botlierskop Private Game Reserve to Toorbos, I was a bit taken back but can't really complain as it is what it is. On arrival, I was given the keys to my hut as i was staying there by myself to waste time for 4 nights and it was ideal for me as it has a 'Dam' and... More

Great place! Chalets right on the dam with jeti and small boat to fish (rods supplied). Full dstv. Not that youd use it. Cleaning staff every day. We stayed in sebra with an extra outdoor shower. What a bargain for a 3 star place.

Great way to just relax, fully furnished cottage, close enough to drive to lots of different locations in the area. We really enjoyed our three day stay. Very affordable rates. Did not catch any fish, but was fun trying!

What a place for a family break. 6 adults and 4 kids in 3 cottages, on the lake with boats , motors and camp fires. Cottages very well equipped and semi-luxury in a country kind of way. Exceded expectations.

Toorbos is excellent value for money, everything was neat & tidy. The best view over the damn, if you enjoy being out in nature this place is for you. Great getaway - highly recommended!
