We recently stayed 2 nights at Wayfarers at the beginning of our two week trip to South Africa.
Wayfarers & Sabie were the perfect locations to see all the Panorama Route sights before we went to Kruger Park.
We flew into Nelspruit airport from Johannesburg and after picking up a hire car which was very quick and easy from Avis, it took us 30-40 mins to drive to Wayfarers. Easy to find in the town.
Great recommendations from Chris on sites to see, however the 'shortcut road' from the potholes to Pilgrims Rest, although very scenic was a rough road for our hire car and probably better suited for a 4x4 vehicle. Chris's recommendation for the 'Wild Fig Tree' restaurant was great and we went both nights we enjoyed it so much!
It was safe to walk to the 10/15 mins to the restaurant in the evening but need to remember the kitchens tend to close around 8pm so need to arrive before then to ensure you get dinner! Chris gave us a torch to use on the way back, which you will need due to some potholes.
We were very sorry to hear Chris had recently lost his wife, but he made us so welcome in his comfortable home. Great breakfasts which kept us going to dinner! Highly recommended and we hope to visit again in the future.

Ideally situated for Kruger Park. Very comfortable and spacious bedrooms. Delicious breakfasts, Continental and full English if desired. Chris is very helpful with a wide knowledge of the area and Kruger Park.
I can thoroughly recommend The Wayfarers.

We stayed at the guest houes in Dec and felt like coming home.
Chris served an excellent breakfast (like you want and need it) and gave us very recomandations for our dailey trips.
Also it was no problem to get all things needed to celebrate a braai at the Mac Mac Pools.
The rooms have been clean and comfortable.
We can highly recommend the guest house, lovely dogs, nice pictures.
Thanks Chris for the nice stay, beers, conversations and the plates ;-)

We enjoyed our stay at the Wayfarer Guesthouse a lot. Chris and his wife Alyson did everything to make us feel comfortable. They had some helpful tips for our trip around South Africa. The room we had was very spacious, the bed comfy, the bathroom big. The breakfast offered everything we desired. A continental and full english choice as well as a fresh selection of fruits. Chris has a passion for photography and has some great wildlife shots around the house. We will definately come back!

My wife Sarah and I stayed at Wayfarers B&B for a couple of days when we first arrived in South Africa on Nov 4th and we also stayed a day before we left for home.
We flew directly from the UK to Joburg and then an internal flight to Nelspruit airport. The 45 minute drive from Nelspruit airport to Wayfarers is through some lovely scenery and the welcome and peacefulness of Wayfarers was just what was needed.
Chris & Morag are extremely warm and welcoming, they are very knowledgeable about the area. Morag had already organised 2 nights in the private Lodge (http://www.arathusa.co.za/) for us in the Kruger which was fantastic and also offered much useful advice on staying elsewhere in the region and travelling through and staying in the Kruger Park.
The B&B has a large guest lounge with numerous guide books. The guest rooms are light, airy and very comfortable. The garden is a lovely place to sit out in with a sundowner or with your breakfast. The Breakfast will set you up for the day and the coffee is grown locally. Don`t be out off by the 2 family dogs, they are very friendly. The car park is very secure.
Sabie is a safe and quiet town with 5-6 restaurants/bars all within walking distance of the B&B and is a perfect location to explore the local area including the Blyde River canyon on day trips and the nearest Kruger gate is about an hour away through Hazy View.
Sabie golf club is another recommendation to sit out on their veranda with a beer or 2.
We will definitely be back on our next trip.
