This guesthouse is very basic. No warm water! No hairdryer. Nothing extra. The breakfast however was nice as well as the garden. Centrally located but that is the only positive thing. I wont return or recommend it to anyone. No Dstv only basic channels.

Exceptional service, cleanliness, hospitality. Very comfortable. Not really worth listing services and facilities because the owners of this Establishment will make anything available. We arrived late, requested meals at silly times, were in a big group and were not the easiest guests......and not once were we denied anything. Fabulous.

My sister and I spent 2 nights at the Ku De Ta before heading up to the Sabi Sands Game Reserve. We loved it. Our room was comfy, cozy and decorated in modern décor, and it looked out onto a wonderful patio and garden. Unfortunately, it rained both days so we weren't able to take full advantage, but the views... More

Wished we could stay longer. The rooms are spacious, comfortable and beautifully furnished and the garden is magnificent. The owner was friendly and welcoming and did everything possible to make our short stay perfect. He prepared a packed picnic breakfast for us, as we were leaving very early for Kruger and then he was up at the crack of dawn... More

I loved my stay at Ku De Ta, it was so relaxing and very different to most B&B's. I felt very welcomed and like I was at home. Its set in a lovely location, quiet and tranquil. I would definitely recommend anyone staying in or around White River to visit.

During November 2012, Child Welfare South Africa, Mpumalanga, booked out Ku De Ta B&B for a conference. What a pleasent experience it was. The food was wonderful. The rooms were clean, comfortable and very beautiful. The gardens created a tranquil atmosphere which made Ku De Ta the ideal place to work and stay. Thank you to the owner and host,... More

Very happy to make a return visit to this oasis of peace and great breakfasts in White River. Johan remains on top form as host with accommodation offering seriously good value as prices in the area rise. Recommended.

Welcome to KU DE TA, a B&B/Guesthouse in the heart of the South African sub tropical lowveld.We have 7 en suite rooms, all with own outside entrances, most with private, outside courtyards, some with additional outside showers and some with large farm style verandas ideally suited to the Lowveld climate. All bedrooms are individually decorated with solid, bold, Indonesian Teak furniture along minimalist lines to add to the feeling of peace, serenity and tranquility. The koi pond meanders all around the house, in and out of the courtyards, reflects a feeling of calm delight.The spacious lounge with its oversized daybeds is ideal for lazy, relaxing afternoons. We serve a full South African breakfast in the dining room, where all the windows and doors can be stacked away to open the entire space to the front garden. Dinner on request, please book a day before.The lush subtropical garden with it’s rolling lawn, majestic Royal palms, large dappled shade trees, orchids, epiphytic ferns, colourful shrubs and rare plant collectors plants is a cool escape.We're in the country town of White River, amongst all the splendours of the lowveld. Blyde River Canyon, Kruger Park, Historical Barberton and Pilgrims Rest. The Crocodile Gorge or en route to Maputo, or one of the many private Game lodges. Interesting craft shopping at Casterbridge, and dining at some of the finest restaurants. ... more   less
