We rented the Izintaba Lodge for a long weekend with our family - party of 10. On booking they said the lodge only had 5 bedrooms but in fact it sleeps more. It's an enormous house with plenty of space to relax and enjoy the tranquility of the bush. The reserve is quite small so driving around is quite simple... More

We spent 5 days at Izintaba over new year, and had a wonderful time. For the first two nights, we stayed in Bushbuck Cottage, and enjoyed the fire pit/ braai area, spectacular shared pool, and the lovely walk around starting near Bushbuck. The kitchen is very well equipped for 4 people. For the next three days, we stayed in Izintaba... More

This is the kind of review you hesitate to write: on the one hand you know the place deserves all the praise it can get, on the other hand you kind of want to keep the knowledge to yourself, to keep it an unspoilt gem! Izintaba is wonderful. There is plenty of interesting wildlife, but no dangerous predators and the... More

Just returned from 4 nights at Bushbuck cottage, and I couldn't wait to put up my review! Izintaba ticks all the boxes for an authentic bush escape only a few hours from Jhb? The kids loved the fenced garden where they can run on the grass and then would put on their shoes for a bush walk. The short walk... More

This is our second trip to Izintaba. Both have been in Kudu Lodge. The tar road to Vaalwater has been rebuilt and the roadworks are completed. This makes the drive much easier. The dirt road which is quite long is average as far as dirt roads go. A mix of hard corrugations and soft sand. In a standard car it... More

If you are looking for a real getaway, this is the place to go. We spent a long weekend in Giraffe cottage - very spacious, clean, with well equipped kitchen (including dishwasher!!!), and comfortable beds Although all the lodges were occupied that weekend, we never saw or heard the other guests (only when watching the rugby). We saw lots of... More

Have just come back from 3 night / 4 day stay at Izintaba - what a wonderful find. Peaceful, relaxing and so close to nature. Stayed in the Zebra Cottage and thoroughly enjoyed the setting - cottage is spacious and comfortable. Loved the lapa 'in the garden' and braai area just about in the bush. Thank you to Andrew and...

Wonderful, very relaxing with excellent accommodation. Beautiful un spoilt nature and the best is you can walk and experience nature first hand. The game drive was very interesting for the kids and such an experience. We stayed in Giraffe Cottage with more than enough space. Owners very accommodating and hospitable

If you are looking for a relaxing weekend away from it all then this is the place to go. The cottage was clean, neat and beautiful.
