It was the most amazing stay. The room was very well appointed, neat and cozy. The breakfast and dinner was unbelievable. Thank you Susan and Leon. It was memorable as always. Just have really created a jewel in Pongola.

We only stopped over for one night but wished to stay longer. The dinner was great and we enjoyed the drinks and pleasant chat with our hosts at the fire place. Next time pongola = next booking at kwalala!
