Lovely accomodation - a perfect stop over to Sabi Sands and close to the Phambeni Gate. A wonderful experience in the peace and quit of Idle & Wild. The owner, Thinus Fraser was very friendly and even allowed his young son to take us around the property to photograph birds in the afternoon. I must say that he is very young and his knowledge of birds was exceptional. Property is well kept with landscaped garden, plenty of trees and a dam.

All in all, it was an amazing service and a perfect place to disconnect. They assisted with the following. 1. Preparation for our anniversary. They organised a relaxing full body massage for my pregnant girlfriend and me, non-alcoholic and alcoholic champagne and flowers for an affordable price. 2. Suggested an amazing route to visit and view the places in Graskop and surrounding areas. 3. Their responses and communication are quick. 5. Quad biking which is just outside the gate was exactly what i needed.

4-sleeper cottage BnB: well-situated for the Kruger Park and Panorama Route near Hazyview. Pleasant outlook with lots of bird life, lovely pool and English breakfasts on the patio. Hosts were so accommodating and kind. Thx to the foreign visitors for staying away, as South Africans we could enjoy a little gem in the bushveld. MacShack bushpub next door a good option for dinners - best steak ever.

Quiet and peaceful. The chalet we stayed in had everyting we needed. Even electric blankets on the beds. The breakfast on the stoep was super nice. Garden is beautiful and we loved the dogs who always came to greet us in the morning.

This was really one of the best places we have stayed in. Property is in a beautiful well taken care luscious green yard. Rooms are pretty clean, breakfast was perfect. The hosts are most lovable warm hearted people. They really are passionate about people. We felt like part of the family. Bathroom can do with a little bit of upgrading, the shower door is broken. Ohh and just look out for those small geckos around your bed before going to sleep. They are harmless but you don’t want them walking on you. Other than that we were very happy there.
