“Excellent stop over”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 31, 2008

We recently stayed at Kwa Lala on a one night stop over from Kruger to Durban. Situated in the town of Pongola it is a convenient 4 hour drive from Nelspruit. The town of Pongola does not have anything to offer and is in fact quite a dismal place - but Kwa Lala is a walled haven with beautiful gardens and the establishment is extremely attractive. The decor and comfort of the main reception rooms is outstanding with great attention to detail.
The accommodation is very comfortable, with all necessities such as aircon, fully stocked bar fridge, TV, complimentary sherry, teas and coffees. The bathrooms are small with only a good shower (no bath). Again the decor is tasteful and everything is clean and well maintained.
The evening meal was exceptionally good, freshly prepared and with personal attention from the owners. In fact, the owners are attentive, helpful, friendly and informative in every respect.
The breakfast was truly one of the best I have had at a B&B.
Although I would not class this establishment as a holiday destination (due to it's location), I would highly recommend it as a stop over for tourists or business people.
