My family and I recently passed through Pongola and relied on Tripadvisor postings to refer suitable accommodation. All the niceties said didn't express well enough the hospitality shown by Susan and Leon. We were met by Rosie at reception who immediately saw to our needs (adjacent rooms) and it didn't take long for our hosts to make us feel completely... More

Having to stay away from home for work is not the best, but driving into Kwa Lala in Pongolo is like driving into my home away from home. The hosts Susan and Leon (town doctor) are the epitome of what all hosts should be friendly, proficient and full of knowledge. The gardens, surrounds, and rooms are always spotless. The food... More

I have been a regular guest (stay once a month) for around 4-5 years now and can only say that Kwalala ticks all the right boxes for a business traveller......safe secure premises, very clean and comfortable rooms and superb meals prepared by the owners and their staff make each stay an absolute pleasure.

My Family and I decided to break our long journey from KZN to the Kruger Park and we decided Pongola was the ideal stop-over, What we found was truly amazing, Kwa Lala is a clean, safe, quiet hotel with friendly staff and delicious food, we were impressed from start to finish. Thank you Kwa-Lala!

At Kwa Lala the owners Susan And Leon always make you feel welcome. The staff are very friendly and the food is absolutely amazing. It is like a mini Oyster box experience in Pongola. I would recommend it to all travelers.

Stayed over for 1 night during our holiday at the Kwa La La B&B. We had a very nice and warm welcome and the rooms were beautiful and clean. Susan and Leo are good hosts and organized a very good meal with delicious wines during the evening. We definitely recommend this place if you would like to stop over night... More

Service is consistently excellent, meals are 5 star (my company books me for B&B, this is the only place I'm happy to pay for their dinner rather than bring my own to eat!) Rooms always clean and beautifully done. Thanks!
