The welcome was very nice and warm. Directly helped us with organizing dinner, as we arrived a bit late in the afternoon. Perfect stay if you want to do the panorama route! The houses have fireplaces and for the cold days there are electric blankets as well. As we were on honeymoon we also got a bottle of wine and... More

We stayed in wooden chalet for two nights in mid July. It was cold but enough wood was provided for the fireplace, it’s a beautiful self-catering accommodation in a quiet idyllic location ideal for exploring panorama route. Rainer and Wally are very friendly and accommodating, we just felt like home. I would highly recommend Zur Alte Mine to other travellers.

I try and visit once a year and visited in June as its a great place to stay if you are visiting Kruger Park. It's a fantastic place to relax after a day exploring and the hospitality is always first class. I am already looking forward to next years visit.

The chalet is situated on a farm. Excellent, central to explore the beautifull area. Quiet,modern chalet. Equipped with everything you need. Electric blankets, heater as well as a fireplace for the cold winter nights. A short hiking trail on the farm to an old mine with beautifull views. Friendly hosts.

We booked the honeymoon chalet and it was charming, furnished beautifully with a fire already set up for us on the cold evening we arrived. The shower was top notch, powerful and with different settings. The kitchenette had everything one would... More

We stayed at Zur Alten Mine last weekend. We arrived late but were still accommodated graciously. We stayed in 2 1 bedroom log chalets with beautiful sunrise views of the lake. The place was rustic, yet spacious and warm with electric blankets and there were heaters even in the bathrooms. The bathrooms were very clean but needed toiletries. The only... More
