Everything was perfect, Magda was very friendly and the accomodation and property kept in an immaculate condition.

Araluen Cottage proved to be a better option compared to the usual hotels close to the airport. I have continued to go to this spotless neat and friendly atmosphere guesthouse for many years now. I doubt that I will change easily.

Zeer goed, gastvrij! Wij kwamen vrij laat aan en het zoeken was enigszins moeizaam, daar we geen navigatie hadden. De ontvangst was allerhartelijkst en het ontbijt de volgende dag prima verzorgd! Great experience with very warm welcome, nice room, good bed! and very nice breakfast. Our first overnight stay in South Africa on our way to Kruger Park. We can...
