The dirt roads are not suitable for a normal car to drive on, let alone a car with a trailer. We were booked in the Rose Cottage but upon arrival we were given the Butterfly Cottage instead. Really scruffy - especially the thatch roof and the bathroom. Outside the house and in the garden the spiders were EVERYWHERE. I did...

WaterbergCottages, Owner at Waterberg Cottages, responded to this review

Hi, we are naturally very sorry you did not enjoy your stay with us, but I do have to correct some of the comments that you made, as they are simply inaccurate. For example, you did book our Butterfly cottage, not Rose - I have checked all the emails. Regarding Butterfly, I would strongly disagree with your description, it is...

You need a 4x4 to get there, there is at least 10km dirt road that a normal car can't endure, you will get stuck in the sand and you will scratch your car. The owner is not available and not interested in complaints. Place is disgustingly dirty, smells like mold, everything is falling apart, frogs, lizzards and insects get into...

I loved staying in Kudo - it was so beautiful and located in the middle of tranquillity and peace. It was suggested that we go for a paddle on the lake with a boat. It was so beautiful. We paddled through some reeds to get to the lake and saw many pink and white lily pads. The centre of the...

We stayed 2 nights at Kudu lodge, big place with a fire place, near a lake with canoeing. Wild and peaceful area, nobody else. We could watch early morning birds on the lake and we had a good walk around.

You expect necessary steps to be taken in the bush such as clean " before visitors arrive". ! A nightmare to see spiders in beds that have been dusted out ! A bath full of ants. Lights that don't work while the insects are all over the show ? I slept on the floor with my baby and my husband...

We stayed in Butterfly cottage, which is one bedroom but had two single beds / sofas in the front room, so it was fine for 2 adults and two children (aged 5 and 7). The children loved the farm walks, the warm pool, the tennis court, the dogs and visiting the hippo pools. We loved the astrological tour. Our hosts...

We stay in Kudu cottage for three nights. Three families with nine kids between us and this was the perfect place for us. Although Kudu is a bit of a drive to the pool and play area for the kids, it fitted our needs perfectly. Kudu has a lovely patio with the view of the dam (we were lucky enough...

We had a wonderful 2 days in one of these cottages and were spoiled with the quiet and the spectacular night skies. There are walks around the farm that are signposted and you can stop off on a bench to enjoy the view. The staff are exceptionally friendly and nothing was too difficult for them. We will definitely be going...
