All activities (Panorama Route, Kruger Safari, airport transfers) were well-organized, food was delicious, and driver/guide was experienced in the game drive (and super punctual too)! The property is located in a lemon orchard (abt 20 min from Kruger gate), but... More

If you are going to Kruger, definitely stay with them. Both Gavin and Carol make you feel at home; thanks to their hospitality, our game drives were not the only highlight of our trip to Kruger. Special shout out to Danny and Jaden, and the amazing dishes made by them customized to our taste!

Couldn't be much better. The owners are very friendly, helpful and gave us some really good advice. Breakfast was extensive (fresh fruit, yoghurt, eggs, sausages etc) and the dinner existed of a really good and also extensive bbq. Moreover one of the owners gave us a free night safari, just because he was so enthousiastic about the environment and wildlife!... More

Apart from the drain in the shower being a bit blocked, we found the room and facilities to be very welcoming, pleasant and comfortable. We appreciated the hospitality tray as well. Breakfast was well presented and very tasty. After a day of travelling the pool was a treat. Gardens and beautiful trees are stunning.

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Laughing Waters Guest House in Hazyview is tucked away in the heart of the picturesque Sabie Valley on the banks of the Sabie River. Journey through the lemon trees to arrive in a beautiful sub-tropical garden, surrounded by tall trees and populated with an abundance of birds, Laughing Waters Guest House is a quiet haven, with a familiarity and comfort that makes you feel quite at home.On checking into Laughing Waters Guest House Hazyview, one will be settling into a retreat that boasts high archways, and a Tuscan ambience, a building that evokes an antiquated awe. Through the landscaped courtyard one will find their room with views of the beautiful surroundings.The location of Laughing Waters Guest House, close to the river ensures slightly cooler temperatures within the valley; this comfortable micro climate makes Laughing Waters Guest House especially welcoming for a Lowveld destination in the hot summer months.The riverine forest and indigenous bush surrounding the farm, the proximity to Hazyview and the Kruger National Park and the occasional sighting of hippos makes Laughing Waters Guest House feel slightly "wild", but still very civilised! We have an in-house tour operator to assist with any tours / transfers you need planned. ... more   less
