A lovely b&b located just outside the town centre of Nelspruit, which is less than 1hour drive to the southern gate of Kruger National Park. We stayed in what must have been the honeymoon suite and enjoyed a sumptuous breakfast at a very reasonable price (the exchange rare worked in our favour). Staff were exceedingly polite.

My husband and I agree this was our favorite lodging (of the 6 places we stayed) while in South Africa. BEAUTIFUL view, comfortable bed, warm on a winter's night, and GOOD wifi. We only wish we had've known how nice it was so we could've been there sooner to enjoy the view!
