Overall and average experience for what you pay. The food was average, and the chalet was icy. even after running a fire for as long as we were awake. Even thou they recommend you to place only3-4 logs. we had more like 6 and just the area at the fire was warm. I eventually woke up around 4am, and started... More

We are very disappointed that this guest chose to report this matter on a review forum without giving Tanamera any opportunity to act and resolve his grievance. This could have been resolved at any time, had the guest brought this up. The matter was not raised during the private dinner served in the chalet, nor afterward. If the guest needed... More

Excellent place to stay for the weekend while you explore the lowveld. Rooms are stunning with views of the Sabie river and valley. Private, romantic luxury with good food, great service and lots of SILENCE. Highly recommended for a well deserved break from the city. Will be back!

Unique view and location. Unique place which one keeps in mind for long. Very nice welcome and comfortable rooms. Not much to do and to see around but definitely worth spending at least a night in this outstanding place.

We spent the first three nights of our South Africa trip here.The thinking was to break the trip from Johannesburg to the Kruger and get over our long haul flight.We could not have made a better choice.Although the weather was a little stormy and wet to say the least it did not spoil our time here at all.

What a beautiful place with beautiful people! A great surprise to come here from safari, different landscape & views. Lots of birds and surrounded by trees.
