Absolutely gorgeous place, remote from everything and nested in an amazing garden... We had a super family stay, including Grand Ma's birthday party which had been organised to the perfection by our hosts. Loved the place and specially the very warm welcome from Jenny and her staff ! Thanks so much for the great time in Bella Manga!

Room tip: Rooms situated in the ancient rondavels are charming!

Awww! Thank you for the lovely review! We loved having your family here and it was super special to share Granny's birthday with you. You are an amazing family! So honoured that we can be part of the special family memories you guys are building with your travels around the world. Maybe we will pop in to say Hi in Mauritius one day!
Love, Chris& Jenny

Everything was fantastic. We had a really warm welcome by our kind, relaxed and attentive hosts. We have booked two nights in one of the inventive round huts (with additional heater if needed) and had excellent breakfast each morning. It is quiet location and we enjoyed our stay there really much.

We felt very comfortable here, it is a very nice well-kept area and the rooms are very comfortable. The owner couple is very attentive. We recommend the property very much. There are various animals and swing and trampoline, which was great for our kids.

Coming from a farm background, we appreciated the restored farm buildings on this property. It was also a wonderful, unique experience to stay in a room the style of a traditional African round hut. We came here directly from the Plettenberg Bay Game Reserve, where we went on a game drive; and we found the Bella Manga Country Escape to be very conveniently located. We enjoyed visiting with Jenny - she has a very easy going demeanor. In the morning, we heard a variety of beautiful sounding birds and got to see Weavers building their nests. We will definitely return if we ever get the chance to visit South Africa again!

Thank you for the lovely review. We love it when people enjoy our farm experience. We are close enough to the local "action", but far away to also offer peace and quiet that one sometimes need to recharge your batteries.
If you visit SA again, we will welcome you back with open arms. And possibly a few more farm animals! All the best, Chris & Jenny
