We stayed in Yellowwood Cottage which we would return to in a heartbeat. Beautifully decorated with candles, flowers, vibrant fabrics and unique pieces of African Art. There was tea, coffee and homemade biscotti in the kitchen as well as some milk and butter. The kitchen is fully equipped and there is a webber on the pation for braai's.

There is a CD player, with some music provided but we also took some of our own which seemed to sound even better in this tranquil haven. The lounge has a log-fire with wood provided and a deep couch to cuddle up under blankets provided and read a book in the well stocked bookshelf.

The covered verhanda looks out over a lovely garden and has a great view of the trees and birds. We enjoyed the swing couch where we listened to the spotted-eagle owls calling and chatted over a glass of wine while the fire crackled in the clay fire-pot.

The Bedroom and bathroom are beautifully decorated and the antique slipper-bath great for a hot soak. The outdoor shower added to the nature experience. There are two single beds adjoining the main bedroom separated by curtains so not really suitable for two couples, only really for close family or friends.

There is no TV in the cottage, with trails mapped out for walking, running and mountain-biking, sport can be enjoyed first-hand rather than vicariously. Really central for a few golf courses and the Kruger Park. Casterbride and Bagdad Centres just before White River have great shops and restaurants for those who prefer sport of a different kind. Great handmade pottery and crafts.

Room Tip: Would highly recommend Yellowwood cottage

Numbela was such a surprise. When we booked, we didn't really know what to expect. We were just looking for something comfortable and affordable outside of Kruger Park. It was such a breathe of fresh air. Its situated on a working farm and it really does feel like you've escaped reality for a little while! Our cottage was beautifully decorated and had a fantastic fireplace. Its self catering and it really had everything we could need and there were restaurants down the road in Hazyview and White River. On the farm itself we had an amazing time - waking up to the birds, sitting by the rivers edge and playing in the shallows. I even saw an otter! We also went mountain biking which was brilliant, lots of good jeep track as well as very technical stuff for my husband. Its only about 15 minutes to the Kruger gate so it was a perfect spot to explore Kruger as well as Sabie, Graskop and surrounds. Totally recommend it.
