Located on the rim of a green canyon, one of South Africa's most beautiful views, with some really great trails and spectacular views from the Leopard trail. The cottages are comfortable, but some aspects could do with a bit of a facelift.
We had an amazing trip with family and friends, the overall quality of the resort, is outstanding. Stunning camping spots under large trees and close to nature. I will highly recommend this resort to anyone.
We just loved the house.There was a few hiccups but most of it got sorted.This house is absolutely perfect for huge families or a group of friends. Four of the bedrooms are en-suite while to have to share a bathroom.Each room has a TV with decoder as well as a kettle,bar fridge etc.
The service was amazing,from booking the accommodation to being welcomed. I loved how clean the place was. if possible please extend tuck shop operating hours during the week. Overall I am a happy client and I will definitely be back and recommend to friends and family.
We stayed 2 nights at this sprawling resort on a large piece of land adjoining the Blyde River Canyon, not far from the 3 Rondawels lookout point. It has basic but comfortable self-catering chalets with everything you need (kitchen with full-size fridge, stove (no oven), microwave, utensils, pots & pans; small quiet bedroom with AC unit and small desk and closet; bathroom with tub and shower. The resort has a large number of units spread over the grounds, and it was relatively empty, even on a gorgeous March weekend (Sat and Sun nights). Having visited the nearby Panorama route viewpoints (God’s Window, Wonderview, Bourke’s Potholes, Lowveld View, Three Rondawels) by car, we were ready to do some hiking in/around the canyon (3rd largest in the world). We had wonderful hikes (there are 3-4 only – we would wish for more hiking trails in this gorgeous area!) right from the property, into and along the canyon – the short Tufa trail down through the forest and along streams, the longer (stunning views) Leopard Trail, and the Guinea Fowl trail (with several good spots to take a dip in the river/pools). Another highlight was the Upper Viewpoint area (just about 1 km up the road from our chalet, at the "bus turnaround point"), which has incredible views – especially late in the day, close to sunset – from rocks looking over the gorge, 3 rondawels, and surrounding escarpment where you can see the changing colors on the rocks. There were baboons running around the resort property (especially early morning) looking for open doors/windows/picnic leftovers, and drinking from the fountain on the lawn - fun to watch. We closed all our windows at night and when we were not there, and had no problem with them. The resort has a nice restaurant with two decks with partial views of 3 rondavels/canyon – a nice coffee stop, although we didn’t eat there since we cooked in our chalet. We would definitely go back, and we think this is the best place to stay to enjoy the B.R. Canyon.…
