My son and I stayed at Aqua Terra on our way to Kruger Nat'l Park. Charlene and Ernest are great hosts, breakfast and dinner are outstanding and filling, the rooms are comfortable and spacious. We enjoyed our stay so much, that on our return trip from Kruger to Jo'berg, we stayed at Aqua Terra again. Charlene and Ernest were extremely... More

Very nice and homely country residence with very friendly and welcoming hosts, Ernest and Charlene. Suburban setting, with good secured parking. An en suite bathroom would have made our stay a little bit more comfortable but in general I would not hesitate to recommend Aqua Terra to anyone passing through the area.

A nice stop between Kruger and Johannesburg n. Very clean and welcoming. Vegetarian food was not really catered for, simply the meal without meat! Nice grounds to walk with a hostess providing lots of interesting info.

We stayed only one night here because we were on our way to the Umfolozi Park. Ernest and Charlene are great - very warm and helpful. We told them that we were on honeymoon vacation and so we found a bottle of champagne and glasses in our room. The next morning we had a great breakfast and Ernest wrote down... More

Aqua Terra is one of the most original and accommodation guest houses I have ever stayed in. the staff is very professional and made us feel right at home. The management never oversold their accommodation which means we arrived and we were surprised at the quality and cleanliness of the entire place. Our 3 year old son could play in... More

Originally I booked a double en-suite, then added another double room for my son with a shared bathroom. However, the other people sharing the bathroom didn't show, so my son also practically had an en-suite too but for a lower price. The rooms were spacious and comfortable, ours had a seating area, and the whole place was very clean, tastefully... More

We decided to stay at Aqua Terra on a whim - it was a long weekend and we booked very, very late. We were very happy at Aqua Terra! There's is enough to do for a long weekend and Dullstroom is only 50km away. Comfortable rooms, great food and the two owners are very friendly. Can't go wrong!
