One of our favourite off-the-beaten-track spots. I'm actually reluctant to write this review, as we almost want to keep Toorbos what it is at the moment still - a hidden gem. Utterly relaxing, quiet and peaceful hideaway in the country and yet equipped with all the luxuries you need. Recharging here for a view days makes one feel like you've... More

Toorbos is a very pretty working Macadamia farm. We spent a weekend in one of the well appointed wooden chalets next to a large, beautiful dam. Everything we needed was available in the chalet, including fishing rods and small boat with oars and optional outboard motor. The evenings were especially good, with millions of stars visible and an excellent frog... More

The cottage has everything you need. Including a heater and electric blankets. A lovely braai area outside with outdoor furniture and a beautiful spot out on the lake to sit and watch the wildlife. The only thing I didn't like was the pungent smell of mothballs in the extra bedding and a dog that ran out barking every time prevented... More

Essentially fisherman's cottages (there are 4 built around the dam), however very cosy for the family. Nice touch with each cottage having there own boat and electric motor to do a little bass fishing on the dam. Cabins are small but have everything needed for a self catered stay. Our cottage was a 1 bedroom with a sleeper couch in... More

Quaint little cabin on the river bank with the most wonderful view. Interior was beautiful: the linen, scatter cushions, drapes, all obviously carefully selected. It is all simple, yet we felt spoiled. The kitchen has all the necessities and we did not miss any utensil or anything. Very private. We had our own built braai next to the river, but... More

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

Although this facility has a lot of potential its current management's lack of regard to the needs of their guests will soon cause its downfall. When we arrived the owner curtly gave us the keys to our chalet and directions on how to get there. I soon had to learn that night through painful experience hat the tap water was... 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!
