I want to start with the only disappointing thing about our stay, but it is an important one. We were a bit late in booking and could only get the "Forest View" room. We assumed that it over looked the forest and not the river, but still had a view. Unfortunately there was no view at all and as this... More

What a wonderful stay outside of Hazyview! Beautiful chalets, ours being a Luxury room which had a private plunge pool and deck looking into the Sabie Valley and the river far below. Very tranquil and peaceful, extremely comfortable bed, fresh flowers on arrival and pretty little touches. The housekeepers were very sweet and serving ladies are local and lovely. Melissa... More

Many thanks to Mansel, Melissa and the team at Tanamera. We were stunned by the view from our room, and enthralled by the peaceful tranquility of the surroundings. Food was superb, and we couldn't have wished for a better welcome from our hosts. We'll back, for sure..!

Beautiful and very romantic spot for any couples. The view of the Sabie river from your room is absolutely breath-taking. Loved the little splash pool where one can sit and relax. We spent two nights for our anniversary at Tanamera and highly recommend it. It is very secluded. The service from Mansyl, Melissa and the rest of the team was... More

Such a beautiful place. Rooms are nice and everything just cozy. Road is not in a great state but that has got nothing to do with the lodge and its basically the norm for all roads in the area. Keep up the good work! Will definitely be back there soon.

At the end of a dirt road, you will find Tanamera - Place of the Red Earth. A very apt name as with all the summer rain, the red earth is indeed evident! As you said, the roads in the area are all like this - but past the road, you will find a beautiful place to stay. We look... More
