“Wynchmore Cottage, a great place to stay at and ideally placed as near to Kruger Park and Mocambique”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 1, 2014

Have stayed at Wynchmore on a number of occasions now, and the standards always remain high.Would not think of staying anywhere else in Malelane. Mike and Jo are fantastic hosts and their breakfasts are absolutely brilliant. The accommodation offers the traveller or holiday maker all that one wishes for. Lovely well appointed rooms with TV, aircons, fridges stocked with mineral water for those hot days, or any other day. WI-FI available to all,.
A lovely pool to cool down after a hot day in the park or back from business. A relaxing time can also be had under the lovely Lapa overlooking the pool

Room Tip: Always try to get the Norfolk room if it is not booked out. Lovely outside shower for that African f...

What a delightful oasis.........the whole atmosphere is welcoming.... made extra special by the delightful hosts Jo & Mark. Stayed in the Norfolk room on the ground floor - super fun outside shower - though a bit too cold to use during our stay - good reason to return! Breakfast was yum! The full works! Sadly a whistle stop stay but thoroughly recommend.

Room Tip: we had the Norfolk room downstairs - lights and bright with excellent bathroom and outside shower...

We looked for a Guesthouse near the Krüger Park and found that lovely place.
Our room was upstairs under the thatch roof, very cosy!

We used the pool for a refreshment, the water is very clean and the area around the pool invites to stay and enjoy the moment.

We had a very good breakfast, try Jo's scrambled eggs, they are excellent!

We are so glad you enjoyed your time with us. It was a pleasure to meet you both and hear of your fantastic sightings in the Kruger - I doubt anyone else has seen what you did in the park!!
Hope you enjoy the rest of your trip and hopefully one day you will return and come and visit us.

PS - you now know how to do the eggs!!!!

My wife and I spent a truly wonderful week at Wynchmore Cottage over the Christmas and New year period. Mike and Jo were the perfect hosts making sure we wanted for nothing. We stayed in the Norfolk room once again and recommend this room for the added experience of the outside shower off the room. The breakfasts produced by Mike and Jo were scrumptious. A perfect place to unwind and stay at, whether on business or holiday. Nothing is too much for our hosts to make sure you have a truly wonderful time at Wynchmore.

Room Tip: Ask for the Norfolk room with the added experience of an outside shower.

This is the third time I've stayed at Wynchmore Cottage and it was so great to go back. Jo and Mike were waiting for us at the gate when we arrive which says it all.. We feel like we're part of the family now.. As usual, the standard was immaculate, the fridge was fully stacked with beers and the note I left in the suggestion box :) worked cos Mike has now put a flat screen tv in the sitting area outside so we could relax after a tough day on the golf course or in the Kruger national park.. We've already booked again for next year and can't wait..
