My mom and I took a midweek break at Wilgeboomsdrift. We stayed in Elandskloof, which is located on the river bank with the most amazing views and a very nice entertainment area.

PROS:
The unit is clean and has stainless steel appliances that actually look brand new. They even surprised us with a DISHWASHER and soap included!!
The beds are super comfortable so sleeping was definitely not a problem.
The house really is equipped with everything you need for a nice stay (freezer, huge gas stove+oven combo, fridge, nice array of cutlery, fire lighters, wood, etc).
The owners and staff are beyond accommodating and incredibly pleasant! They deserve a full 5 stars and more!
The activities are really well priced and you definitely get value for money. We had a blast on game drives, horse rides and a bush walk.

CONS:
We hadn't realised Elandkloof had a unique layout. There is only one bedroom on the ground unit, with the other two one floor up. They are connected with stairs that are located on the outside. Also to access the third bedroom, you walk through the second one.
There is some wear and tear on some of the furniture (old mats, few broken items etc).
The fridge is rather noisy.

This place will definitely be seeing us again. The few cons there were, was quickly overcome (like we switched the fridge off at night) and it is definitely a gem worth visiting! The peace is out of this world and the kindness of all the staff, the host of activities, and animals definitely made for a wonderful visit!

Our stay at Wilgeboomsdrift Safaris was great especially due to the fact that it is pet friendly. We had great walks and we really relaxed and rested.
The accommodation is very nice - definitely a place to visit again.

Great bush experience, game viewing, hippos on the property, clean, quiet, peaceful, good lighting at night, lovely decor. Well-fitted out kitchen & facilities, didn't make use of daily cleaning service (Covid). 4x4 is recommended. Enjoyable stay but not much in the way of daytrips in the area. Didn't use the jacuzzi (rainy, cool weekend) and splash pool has been drained because of the hippos.

Wilgeboomsdrift Safaris is one the best places I visited so far. Zonica the admin lady was professional when I started with the booking process. After that that Monica and Ben the host were vey professional and caring I ever seen. They make you feel like yo are part of their family. I appreciated all the phone calls I received from them I was on my way. Also assistance with our luggage proved that they understand the basic principles of hospitality industry. Also when we at at the property the prompt response was on another level.I also enjoyed the game drive we went to. Lastly I will like to say that is one best holiday I ever had , having a house with fridge, stove, gas and electric,microwave,Ice machine, dishwasher , all the cutlery you need and on top of that the view of the river and hippos what can I ever ask for.Thank you Wilgeboomsdrift Safaris for such a quality experience , you have beome part of my family.Anyone who want to go there don't think twice , go you will definitely have time of your life.

We were booked in at Wildebeesuitsig. Everything was excellent. The cutlery and kitchenware very good quality. The bedrooms comfortable with very good beds and aircons in every room. We sat on the veranda and watched the hippos, wildebeests another animals while we barbecued. The game drive and feeding of the buffaloes an amazing experience. Thanks to the friendly hosts.

We had the most tranquil few days at Wilgeboomsdrift, and it feels as if we have been away for weeks! It was so amazing to wake up and hear the birds, also to see the otters playing in the river and amazing sightings on the game drive.

Ben, Monica and Barend were such pleasant hosts and made sure that we didn't need a thing. The messages we received, to explain how to drive there were spot on & made us feel as if they really cared. The house was clean, crispy linen & towels, everything we needed in terms of kitchenware, huge fridge, ice, the most amazing granite tables in the kitchen and outside!

This will definitely be one of our future go-to places. Hope to see you soon again.

Thank you Monique, Barend and Ben for excellent service. Wilgeboomsdrift Safaris is a great destination and our family will definitely be back soon.

From the moment we arrived at the gate, greeted by Monique and some hippo we saw true Bosveld Hospitality at its best.

The kids enjoy the fishing, quad bikes and jacuzzi.

We will be back soon!

I recommend people who are driving bakkies/SUVs as the terrain is very rugged. No reception but there is wifi so you can whatsapp. Great place won't lie, next time will go for game drive as well. It was a fun trip, we enjoyed. The house was very clean and service was great, no complaints at all!

Location is excellent, just 2.5 hours from Joburg. The accommodation is very modern with everything you need. We loved the privacy and tranquility in nature. Boys really enjoyed activities such as horse riding and quad bikes! We’ll definitely visit again!
