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.

Idle & Wild is a very nice and quiet bed and breakfast on ten minutes distance from the Kruger National Park. It offers nice well maintained cottages with more than sufficient space, very clean. 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 were received very kindly. It was our first stay in SA and we loved it. We slept in a rondavel. It was clean en just really nice. We had a little trouble finding the resort. Breakfast was good as well. Very friendly staff who gave some advice about the area :)

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!

Stayed for 1 night. The accommodation was spotlessly clean with a kitchen area with a mini bar which functioned on an honesty basis. There was decking out front to sit and enjoy the peaceful scenery. Free wi fi was on offer in the main building. The only reason this is not 5 stars is because there were ants on my... More

Having lived in Hazyview for 8 years it was difficult to decide where to stay on a return visit. The reports on Idle and Wild looked better than most and yes we did know the owners and staff. Everything was excellent. Stayed there on the way in and three weeks later on the way out. Accomodation brilliant and excellent value... More

Not a brilliant experience for us. The good parts: good location, the night we arrived Wendy recommended a great restaurant. Lovely grounds, very peaceful, well run. Great base for exploring the Blyde River Canyon. The bad parts: Wendy was on her own the time we were there, and she was visibly stressed. Too much rolling eyes and breathing in for... More
