We had a lovely stay of three days, including a day out with Gavin in Kruger Park where we say the "Big 5" in just several hours -- not guaranteed of course! Meals were lovely, food was great, Carol and Gavin are delightful hosts. Rooms are spacious and very comfortable, as is the lounge and the pool area. Bathrooms could... More

Garden with pool is perfect. Unfortunatly room looks quite old, but is very clean. But the bathroom is really ages old. That reduces the overall rating to average. Don't visit the elephant sancturary nearby. It is to expensive and not worth the money!!!

We spent just one night at Laughing Waters heading North from Kruger . The road from the gate is quite rough but perfectly manageable . Getting through the gate was a problem because you need a code & phone reception around the gate area is very poor so we had to drive a little way away to contact Laughing Waters... More

all the other comments of travelers were right! A very nice experience, good food, friendly staff, very clean. A candle more during dinner would have been helpful to find the plate;-) In general a delight!

Laughing Waters Guest House in Hazyview is tucked away in the heart of the picturesque Sabie Valley on the banks of the Sabie River.

Through the landscaped courtyard one will find their room with views of the beautiful surroundings.The location of Laughing Waters Guest House, close to the river ensures slightly cooler temperatures within the valley; this comfortable micro climate makes Laughing Waters Guest House especially welcoming for a Lowveld destination in the hot summer months.The riverine forest and indigenous bush surrounding the farm, the proximity to Hazyview and the Kruger National Park and the occasional sighting of hippos makes Laughing Waters Guest House feel slightly "wild", but still very civilised!
