Had a great welcoming, staff is very friendly. Talk to Robert, he is the best host, knows his stuff and makes you feel fomfortable. Nice rondavels and beautifull place to stay. Visit the elephant sanctury and do a tree top ride. Take a tour with Robert on the quads.

Stayed in one of their honeymoon rondavels this time. Excellent. Great for using as a base for visiting the KNP. Christie and Darryl as helpful as ever. If your feeling adventurous try the quad biking. Like nothing you will get in the UK. Tinnus and I reckon it was a leopards paw print we found.

We stayed here only one night but wish it could have been one more. The house is surrounded by a very beautiful garden. Some of the bedrooms are in cute bungalows at the back (they all seem to have kitchenettes). Wifi works but not everywhere. When we arrived, we were met by a nice young guy at reception. Not sure...

What a great stay we had in this little paradise. We were first greeted by the dogs and the loveliest cat we have ever come across. She ( or he ?? ) followed us into our room.....well we sort of lured her into coming in. We were upgraded to a big room right next to the entrance of the main... More

This B&B had large cottages with a kitchenette situated in a large green and lush garden. The main building where the breakfast was served and where you could relax and enjoy Internet had kind of a colonial interior styling that looked very appealing. The B&B near to ( < 10 km ) Hazyview, a town where one can stock up... More

We stayed only one night in the Idle & Wild Lodges, enough to realize that it should have been at least 4 nights more. The place is just great : the garden is beautiful, the people are very warm and welcoming, the rooms are huge and well equipped (we had one with a kitchen and a separate bedroom for the... More

We have stayed twice at Idle & Wild. It's a great place with comfortable rondevaals and a tasty breakfast. They have very nice gardens and grounds, and it is close to the Kruger National Park. Highly recommended.
