White House Lodge A beautiful, comfortable, clean place to stay with friendly hosts. The property is gorgeous and there is an exquisite view from the swing - we must have spent at least a couple hours just savoring the view! The swimming pool looked very inviting but given that it was winter season it was a bit on the colder... More

Susann and Detlef are very welcoming hosts, and went out of their way to make our stay comfortable. For example, I was there with a friend to compete in a local bike race, and they got up... More

Our rooms were clean and comfortable and the swimming pool was crystal clear. We would definitely return and recommend it to our... More

To our delight this was an excellent choice., The grounds, the room, the breakfast, and the customer service were all great! We needed to make some arrangements and Susann was gracious enough to make some... More

The owners were really helpful before we even arrived in South Africa. This was to be our first night in South Africa and being a bit apprehensive about it the owners were very accommodating by arranging dinner for us. This was lovely home cooked food. This was our first experience of these South African Lodges and we were highly impressed.... More
