Lovely setting...our room was on the top floor of a two story building. It had high ceilings, a large bed, step down to the fireplace/living room area...out to a balcony with views of a forest...very nice. There was a separate large bathroom area with heated towel rack. The only odd thing in the room was that the artwork were all... More

I spent a mid-winter (South African mid-winter) break with my sister and three grown-up children at Mount Sheba this year, and it was a truly remarkable and memorable experience. Despite being at the time when major restoration work was being carried on outside all of the buildings, the stay was fantastic. The breakfast dining room near the pool is second... More

Clearly whoever gave this place Four Stars never stayed at Mount Sheba. All they did was checked that all the requirements were met and the 4 stars handed over. We recently stayed at Mount Sheba for 3 nights with our 3 kids and of course we ran a bath for the children. To our absolute shock the water came out... More

Was booked in this place by my vacation club. Very little is advertised about the place. We stay three nights and the facility was quite impressive. It's about an Hour from Kruger and hidden in dense forrest. Quality in everything. A nice get away. To get to the resort you drive 10km on a rough road. A sedan would do... More

We have been going here for decades, so my review might not be a reflection of what a first time visitor will experience... The chalets are all being refurbished, and the equipment levels are fairly high in either the smaller or larger chalets (separate red and white wine glasses, coffee percolator, two open fire places supplied with wood and anthracite...

We stayed three nights in this charming rustic lodge in the Drakenburg mountains. Upon arrival we were greeted with sherry while the very friendly staff checked us in. Shortly after our 3pm check in the power went out, a frequent occurrence in South Africa. Fortunately, their back up generator, “Big Daddy” kicked in a few minutes later. Rooms were clean,... More

My wife and I were driving from Johannesburg Airport to Kapama Game Reserve (see my review) when we got three flat tires on the terrible road. It was late at night, and we were faced with sleeping in our car on the side of the road or looking for an inn. Fortunately, we saw a sign for Mount Sheba, but... More
