Aqua Terra means 'water and earth' in Latin, this is clearly portrayed as the Sterkspruit River flows along the outskirts of this one hectare property, a midst shady willow trees and rolling lawns. For the nature lover you can drink your coffee under our lapa looking at the sunrise over the Longtom pass or for the adventurer, come and join us for a Mountain Bike ride in the Nature Reserve.

I always stop over at Aqua Terra when I'm in the area or looking for a break...
The hospitality at this guesthouse is remarkable... the staff are so warm and friendly. This guesthouse is great value for money and easy to access from the main road/ Lydenburg town. Lots of amenities in the nearby area to keep you busy and your host will tell you all about it. The breakfast is hearty and the rooms are always clean and tidy with the best rusk slice on your bed pillow. I always recommend Aqua Terra if you're looking for a short-term stay in the lowveld. Looking forward to my nest stay there

We had an excellent short stay at Aqua Terra, a well serviced guest house. The hosts do go out of the way to assist and make one feel at home, without imposing themselves upon you. The bathroom in our bedroom could do some more intensive cleaning (grouting in shower). The ceiling fan in our room did not work either. There was another fan provided but it was rather too noisy.

I needed an overnight stay on my way from Shelly Beach to Hoedspruit and was very satisfied with this guesthouse. From the enthusiastic friendly welcome to the comfortable room and the delicious breakfast, it was wonderful. The hosts made me feel special.

I visited this lodge with a group of 7 friends. We had the most amazing stay with the hosts, who really made us feel like we were at home. The grounds are amazing, with just so much free space. So many great things to visit nearby on a short drive.

We spent two nights there, and every moment of the stay was jam packed with activities, to the point where we just ran out of time to get to do everything we wanted. Cannot recommend a trip here enough!

Lovely stop over with great hospitality and an excellent sense of humor. Do not expect wi-fi, as this is an excellent place to communicate with each other, rather than wasting time on social media. May I just suggest a bottle of water in the room for those thirsty nights? Other than that, everything was perfect.

Had a great weekend staying at Aqua Terra with my mates. We were attending one of our mates' wedding, the location from Aqua Terra to the wedding venue was perfect, the scenery at the lodge was awesome and they have the friendliest dogs ever. Would recommend it to anyone planning to travel to Mpumalanga. Coming back with my family soon.. ...Thanks, Charlene & Ernest

We stayed in a very spacious flat, with 3 rooms and a seperate lounge. We had a very friendly reception from the owner and immediately felt right at home.

We had morning coffee and rusks on a bench next to the river, watching the birds. What a great way to start the day!

My fiancés and I stayed over at Aqua Terra Guest House in Lydenburg for a wedding nearby, and our experience was lovely and without any complaints.

Spacious layout, clean rooms, quirky and interesting décor, well maintained and relaxed atmosphere on the property and gardens. The hostess Charlene was very friendly, easy-going and helpful during our stay over and the service was flawless.

We definitely would recommend staying over for a night or more, we had a very pleasant stay over.
PS. There are books in the rooms and lobby :-)

Very nice and helpfull stuff. Clean and very pretty rooms. The food was not perfect, but absolutely okay. Perfect for staying one night before your flight. It might be the best airport hotel I stayed in!

Hallo Fiorello Thank you for the message. We were not at home and only received this question today. It is no problem, but not advisable to travel at night. If you keep me up to date regarding to your arrival time, it will not be a problem. I hope to see you soon, Charlene.
