Utopia in Africa is lovely. It is set in a very nice neighborhood in Nelspruit bordering a nature preserve so we were able to view Bushbabies and porcupines after dark when they came up below the deck. The room was large and very comfortable but what sets this home apart are the owners, Patricia and Hameed who were so warm... More

I booked this hotel because of the excellent reviews I had read. However, I was not as enthusiastic as most reviewers. I found it overrated in absolute terms and in comparison with similar places in Nelspruit. The location is definitely a plus and so is the architectural design of the building. But I did not like the outside breakfast area... More

Best shower we had during our holiday. We slept in the Kings room and the kids slept on a sleeper couch, which was great. The beds are a little short for long people. Also internet was very good. A variety of coffee and tea is included. The owners and staff are very friendly. The whole guesthouse had nice and different... More

Utopia is in a lovely neighborhood atop the ridge. Overall it is really great—decor, staff, food, rooms. One area for improvement is the doors to the rooms are like typical household bedroom doors (very lightweight and thus noise travels easily) vs. insulated sound-proof doors. I could hear everything in the hallway outside my room and those entering the room across... More

We stayed here at the beginning of May after a very long flight and drive. We had a very warm welcome and the bed & breakfast looked very clean, beautiful and organized. The view from the room and balcony was stunning and was also very relaxing. Patricia was a very good hostess and organized a really nice and pleasant dinner.... More

We chose Nelspruit as a middle stopover to Kruger national park. Nelspruit is very peaceful and beautiful medium size city and we loved our stay at 'Utopia in Africa'. It is located at a hill with a magnificent view. Neighbor area is safe and it is good to go out for a morning walk around. Staffs were very hospitable and... More

We stayed in Utopia in Africa for 2 nights. This was a very pleasant experience. All rooms in the house, including the veranda were cozy, very well decorated with attention for details. The owners were very welcoming and helpful. They made us feel at home. We strongly recommand with no hesitation.

We stayed 2 nights in this beautiful guesthouse in the hills above Nelspruit! Tastefully decorated with extremely comfortable, large room and bathroom! To eat breakfast out on the verandah is such a treat! We interacted with other guests over a very good candlelit dinner! We will most certainly be back! At the risk of sounding shallow, we did miss a... More
