    This is a beautiful place to visit. No noise and very clean. Staff is very friendly and helpful. Units is not close to each other so there is a lot of privacy. will definitely go back again

    There were 21 of us in our Must Love Hiking group. We stayed in cabins that were basic and clean and well stocked with wood. There was ample ice at our request supplied by Happy as there is no fridge nor any other appliances. There is a gas stove with gas cylinders. The cabins all faced the boma which we sat round the fire every night. The ablutions were spotlessly clean with plenty hot water while the donkey geyser (log fire under the geyser) was burning. Wonderful rustic experience out of our normal luxurious comfort zone. Kitchen was basic and clean. We hiked the 4km and the next day 10km. The hikes were absolutely amazing. Lots of highlights from technical to challenging to invigorating swimming in the pools under the waterfalls! Views were absolutely breathtaking! Definitely one for the bucket list! All I can say is WOW! An awesome experience! Thank you Wathaba Hiking Trails! 👏

    A short 3 hour drive east from Johannesburg, takes you to Wathaba Rainbow Falls farm.

    The main reason to visit are a 10km and 4km hike on the property. The 4km one is truly utterly spectacular. Green mossy forests, big trees, swinging vines, cool mountain pools and stunning waterfalls. Don’t miss Bald Ibis Gorge at abut the 2km mark on the 4km hike, it will take your breath away.

    Valley View Cottage is the newest and most modern addition to the accomodation, with amazing views over the valley and a rock pool to laze around.

    Mountain Creek Cabin is the most remote and away from other people. It’s pretty rustic/basic although it has everything you’d need and you certainly get the feel of a far away private cabin in the woods.

    The above accomodation are small with shared open-plan living/kitchen/sleeping area, so not suitable for all families. The are also cheaper camp and dorm room options.

    Would have given 5 stars but the reception team could do with better customer service and a smile would not hurt too much. Could have been a cultural mismatch but not enough to ruin our stay.

    I’d be happy to return.
