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.

The place and the people are a gift to the weary. It is peaceful, quiet, filled with beauty and gracious people as well as good food. Felt restored and grateful as I drove away. Also very centrally situated to all the beautiful, attractive tourist delights of the Lowveld.

The 3 of us shared a 2 story chalet with 2 bedrooms, a living area, 2 bathrooms,and kitchen facilities...it was huge and surrounded by beautiful gardens. It is actually on a working macadamia tree farm. The breakfast was wonderful and the people super friendly.

The breakfast is well up to standard, no complaints about the food at all. The staff is friendly. Very good value for your money and can... More

We had a one night stopover here and were made to feel more than welcome. We were a party of 8 which included 3 overseas visitors, and had a 4 sleeper unit and 2 x 2 sleeper rondavels. Upon arrival, however, we were upgraded to the "honeymoon" rondavels at no extra cost just because, we were told, that they were... More

We liked the Idle & Wild a lot. The property is beautiful. The rondavels were clean and nicely decorated. The great breaktfast was served on the terrace looking over the garden and pond. The staff was very friendly and helpful with restaurant and activity tips. The B&B is a little out of Hazyview and you need a car around here,... More

We stayed for 2 nights at Idle and Wild. We loved the rondavels, the breakfast was delicious, and the owners and staff were so friendly. These were the 2 first night of our South African holliday and a very good start!
