exquisite horse riding experience in the middle of African bushveld and plains game, very spacious public areas and rooms, good food. Didn't try the other activities, therefore can't comment on that..

Incredibly beautiful setting with 270 degree views overlooking the Pongola valley and bush veld. We really enjoyed being able to walk in the bush and up the Pakamisa mountain let alone being able to ride very well behaved and cared for horses. The food was of a very high standard and the Pakamisa staff all exceptional - I have to... More

We had a wonderful time, walking and going on game drives, and for me, riding amongst the giraffes, ostriches etc. Excellent service, very welcoming and friendly, superb food. Wonderful Bush Breakfast!

My husband and I along with our 2 daughters (aged 5 and 6) recently stayed for two nights at Pakamisa on our way back from a beach holiday. We were treated to delicious meals, the most spectacular views and comfortable accommodation. We had wonderful service from the staff. Chamu took us on a very interesting game walk and Sophie and...

We really needed a get away from it all weekend after a busy 3 months....Pakamisa was just what we needed. A beautiful, away-from-it-all location, with absolutely stunning views. If horse riding is your thing, this is definitely a must stay lodge. In addition, there are other activities, including game drives, bush walks, archery. The pool area is has spectacular views,...

Where do I start? From the staff to the horses, the accommodation to setting, everything about it was superb. 5 * dining with gorgeous, patient horses who I just fell in love with. Owned by a wonderful, warm couple. Really well looked after horses and Isabella is a fountain of knowledge for horses. Beautiful pool, wonderful rooms and a well... More

Okay my review is a bit late, we stayed here in October 2014, but I have to say this is one of the most wonderful places I have ever stayed. We were made to feel at home straight way by Isabella and Anthony, they know so much about the local area and were full of great ideas for activities and... More

I wish we could give this more than 5 stays. If you are going to South Africa then this is a must. The accommodation was very large and comfortable with lots of lovely little touches to make you feel at home. The food was some of the best we had eaten in South Africa. Very homely and tasty and the... More
