Quiet, peaceful, chalet accommodation, nestled in an orchard, conveniently located for access to Kruger Park and the Mozambique border. Well equipped for self-catering. Linda made us feel welcome from the moment we arrived until we departed although it was only for 2 nights.

Orchards come to our rescue after we had a very bad experience at another guest house. The units were very clean and they really put some thought into it. These are self-catering units. It is ideal for any bird lover and is a very nice place to relax. Linda was very friendly and very helpful. She gave us a very...

Thank you for your very kind review. Your suggestions for the viewing deck at the river are very helpful - floods and droughts in turn have taken their toll, and it has been earmarked for an overhaul! All the better for our guests to enjoy a sunset enjoying the tranquility of the river! We hope that you will visit us...

We found Orchards Farm cottages very comfortable and well equipped. The deck has a lovely view of the Nkomati river, and the hosts were very friendly and helpful. The cottages are conveniently close to the N4, so one is aware of the constant sound of the highway (and railway).

Orchards Farm Cottages are beautifully situated on the banks of the Komati River. Doug & Linda are a friendly couple and you are always welcomed by Linda with a big smile. Once you had experienced the hospitality and the peacefulness on the veranda you will come back for another stay.

We booked this Cottage for only one night. Great reception from Mrs. Linda. Nice dinner out on the terrace and great breakfast with a delicious home made Marmelade! Beautiful view of Komati River and sleeping Crocodiles! Some noise due to close railway and freeway

Thank you for your very kind review. We hope that you will visit us again in the near future! The nearby town of Komatipoort has seen a huge increase in road traffic as well as train traffic in the past few years, and while the increase in tourism is welcomed by us, the noise level is an unfortunate by-product.

Doug and Linda were most accommodating as we had special needs. They went out of their way to make sure that we were looked after. Chalets are laid out in such a way as to allow privacy and are tucked away in the bush so there is lots to of wildlife to see "on your doorstep". Will definitely return again

We loved having you here, and we hope to see you back again soon. I found a Giant Eagle Owl not far from your cottage - he has been in the big Marula tree for a few evenings now! Must be some good vibes rubbing off! Fond regards Linda And Doug

Doug and Linda very friendly. Linda was very accommodating, especially with us arriving late for dinner first night. Breakfast and the dinners we chose were delicious. Lovely, peaceful setting and convenient for Kruger or even for a day in Maputo. Will stay there again.
