I wish to stay more than a week.It is a home away from home indeed.The breakfast was mouthwatering.The staff was so freandly and cooperative.The freshness of your garden makes one not to even want to go outside the yard.I enjoyed staying indoors for a day.I would love to visit again soon this year,2016.

A very nice setting, with super friendly staff that helps out with information on the plans you have. We stayed in 2 rooms in stead of the rondavels, which was maybe a bit less idyllic, but the rooms were nice and spacious. On the plus side, we had wifi in our rooms. Furthermore, the rooms had 2 showers: 1 inside... More

Very large rondavel with wonderful settings. The garden is very well established with outdoor pool and sauna. Nothing was too much trouble for Conrad and his wife. The breakfast was generous, it was palatial for $90.00. It is very close to a number of eating establishments.

Idle and Wild is a beautiful, idyllic setting in a brilliant location for a visit to the Kruger National Park. My mum and I visited this week for a 6 night stay.

Relaxing place, truly idle and wild. Convenient location, close to Kruger. Lovely gardens with a outdoor pool. Unfortunately we had just a short night there would have loved to stay longer and enjoy the quite relaxing place and the pool. Friendly host, great service.

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Listen to the fish eagles calling as you unwind in secluded and spacious African thatched rondavels. Soak up the warmth of the sun around the pool or pamper yourself in the sauna. Idle & Wild is on a working farm. The Sabie River runs through our property and peaceful walks can be taken. Each Rondavel is privately set in a sub-tropical garden. With own Kitchenette, air-conditioning, verandah and braai (barbeque). Honeymoon Rondavels have private spa-bath, with views over the garden, mountain and dam. The Honeymoon Rondavels is ideal for romantic getaways. The rooms adjoin the main house, each having a lounge area within the room, with TV, bathroom en suite, air-conditioning and a kitchenette. The Room has 2 separate entrances, one entrance is close to reception and the other from a private court yard with braai (BBQ) facilities. The Sunbird room also has a small room containing a double bunk bed and its own toilet and basin. A full English breakfast is served on the verandah of the main house, or should you wish to make an early start to the Kruger National Park, a packed breakfast will be provided. IDLE & WILD is ideally situated for a rejuvenating break in the heart of nature, or exploring the surrounding areas such as Kruger National Park, God's Window, Bourke's Luck Potholes, Pilgrims Rest and the many waterfalls. Hot air ballooning, game drives horse riding, skyway trails, hikes, bass fishing & cycling are just some of the activities in the area. Restaurants nearby. German and Afrikaans spoken. Wi-Fi.
