Hosts were superb, efficient and responsive to every question (and we had many, about things to do, places to go, packing handi-crafts, etc). Location is convenient (7 KM) for the Mpumalanaga (Nelspruit) Kruger International (MPK) airport. Fantastic views. Excellent breakfasts. Family friendly.

We stayed for one night on the way to Kruger park, and we loved it! The place has outstanding views over the valley, and a nice swing on top of the hill to enjoy it. The owner recommended us a nice restaurant in the neighbourhood and gave us advise and updates about the Kruger park (which was needed because there... More

We stayed here a few days ago, on the first night of our trip through SA. When we booked the stay Susann immediately sent us an email with some useful additional information, which was very helpful. We stayed at the luxury cottage and in everything the attention for detail was showing. We felt very welcome, the location looks stunning with... More

Stayed here for a night prior to heading to Kruger Park, and then again for a night afterwards (which wasn't pre-booked). Susan and Detlef were so accommodating, the rooms and grounds are beautiful with great views. The breakfast was absolutely superb, and all advice given to us by Susan and Detlef was spot on. We only realised on our last... More

The stay was wonderful once again. The host, a German couple, can tell very interesting information about the country. The cozy lodge offers everything you need: Pool, terrace, park, the ever-ready coffee machine and service in the background allow a very relaxing holiday. I have already planned my next vacation in the White River Lodge.

Amazing place, clean, INCREDIBLE views, lovely people and great value. Only thing letting it down is that it is a little way out of White River if you were wanting to go and eat out but the compromise on this is that you get the most incredible views. Wish we would have been staying longer and would definitely go back.

Fabulous venue overlooking beautiful views of SA!! Run by Susan & Detlef, two of the most welcoming people you will meet. Close to the Kruger Park gates, but also within easy driving distance of God's Window, the extraordinary 'Potholes' and the 'Pinnacle'. Fab waterfall's and not forgetting Pilgrim's Rest...another world totally!! Check out their website! It's all it says, and... More

We stayed in the family chalet. It was comfortable, well kept and clean. Breakfast was very good, served in the patio garden. The location was fantastic with a beautiful garden, breathtaking views and lovely pool. The host, Mrs Susan was very friendly, kind and helpful. We had an excellent stay unfortunately just for one night. We highly recommend this place... More
