So much attention to detail has made Wetlands such a wonderful place to stay. First impression is its setting, in a lovely quiet tree lined street. The guest house is surrounded by a most beautiful garden planted with exotic plants, lovingly tended by Hettie. Immediately Colin is at hand to help with the luggage, serve a welcome drink and explain the amenities. Every room is full of character from the 4 poster bed in the bedroom, the spacious shared lounge and the remarkable upstairs veranda for breakfast. There is so much to do locally. Colin's suggested itinerary of a day exploring the extensive game park, walking the local forest trails and taking a boat ride on the estuary for close encounters with hippo and crocodiles makes for an unforgettable experience. A minimum of three days is necessary to take it all in. Even the hired car was pampered daily with a good hose down by the gardener. Come the evening there is a fine selection of fruit, sweets and sherry to follow a meal out at a local quality restaurant. It is difficult to think of anything else the family could do to enhance the comfort and interest of the stay.
