We (me, wife, kids aged 20,18,15) had a super stay. Excellent in all respects. Hosts were helpful with recommending activities, restaurants etc. Rooms were looking out over lovely garden. 5 minutes drive from centre of Sabie

We stayed at Hillwatering Country House on our way back to Joburg airport from Kruger National Park. The rooms were impeccably clean, comfortable with a superb view on the mountains, and individual terraces! The breakfast was nothing short of lavish, and we had a nice, long chat with our hosts, who were amazing! I strongly recommend this charming B&B! Sabie... More

Ane and Riane were very welcoming. Ane is very knowledgeable about the area and recommendations about the sightseeing. We had two rooms the were joined by a small hallway. Perfect for a family of two adult kids. The rooms were spacious and clean. There was complimentary tea, coffee and cocoa available in your room, throughout the day. They are conservationists...

Hillwatering Country House was very comfortable if a little expensive compared with other experiences on the same trip, we especially totally appreciated your later call to us, reminding us that we had left an important item behind without noticing ! Thank you for caring.
