One of the nicest things about travelling through South Africa is staying at affordable B&Bs that offer a level of luxury Europeans can only dream of.
Ku De Ta is just that kind of B&B. It was recommended to us by a local. (Thanks Jan!) Our idea was to find a place to stay on the way from Jo'burg to Kruger. But we liked it so much, we ended up staying for four days.
What we didn't realise is that area around White River (Witrivier) is itself a really great area to explore. We soon realised what we had stumbled upon. Waterfalls, white water rafting, caves, gorgeous scenery, local produce - it has it all. White River itself is a fascinating town to discover for yourself what the new South Africa is all about. All this, and on the doorstep of Kruger.
Johan is not just someone who has opened his home to strangers. First ot all, this is no ordinary house. He has created a serene oasis that has the feel of a 5-star hotel. The rooms open out onto a patio that has a fish-filled pond and several modern fountains. In our room the feeling of privacy and space was wonderful. We especially liked the huge rustic bathrooms.
Secondly, Johan is a great host. He clearly knows what he is doing. He and his staff obviously work hard to make sure their guests have a great stay.
Johan, we can't tell you enough how much we enjoyed staying at your place. It helped to make our vacation what it was.
