We stayed one night, before to reach blyde River canyon. Hosts were kind and helpful, they gave us good advice for next day. We booked dinner + breakfast, I suggest you to do the same because they cook like chefs. Bed is large and comfortable. Common bathroom is clean.

After our booking, we already had a nice conversation with Charlene and got her updated with our arrival time. At arrival, we got a very warm welcome.

Close to the sea, very comfortable rooms. In the morning a very tasty breakfast. We did not use the swimming pool, but it looked inviting to us. In walking distance a nice beach restaurant, where we had muscles.

The location of Aqua Terra in Lydenburg was brilliant for us on our way to the game parks after an early afternoon arrival in Pretoria.The route directions provided by our hosts earlier were invaluable. Charlene welcomed us and made us feel at home in our quite eclectic and spacious room. It was lovely to take a walk in the grounds...
