It would be preferred to be advised if big groups and functions are taking place when FIT bookings are made. We wanted a quiet weekend away. Wedding party during first dinner was very rowdy, and matric dance event during second dinner. Attention to detail needed when cleaning tents - brush down walls behind toilet doors.

The Rain Farm is a lovely venue whether wanting to stop in for a scenic light lunch and a swim on a hot day, to a weekend getaway at a game venue. I was there for a wedding, which was very well run by the staff there.

Almost on our doorstep and I never knew about this little slice of heaven! We stayed in the luxury tree top tents - oh my gosh! So tranquil with great comfort and incredible views. The room was clean and well equipped. The staff were very helpful and in particular the guy who takes the game drives - what a gem!...

Reuben stole the show ! Absolutely loved the 75 minutes. A laugh a minute. The trip was very reasonably priced - in fact they could have charged more. The restaurant is fab - overlooking the pool and the park. 5/5

My stay at Rain Farm was not very pleasant. The first night i had no sleep due to visitors in the next chalet making a huge amount of noise, playing music and scremaing and laughing until after 1am. I called Reception to get the noise level down but it didnt change. The second night i was moved to Hartebees and...

Hi Nazreen, Thank you for your review, I am so disappointed to hear that your stay was an unpleasant one, that's definitely no way we want our guests to leave our establishment. I am happy however to hear that at least your second nights stay in Hartebeest was a more pleasant experience. Thank you for feedback on the breakfast buffet,...

Fantastic accommodation and i feel the Giraffe room which we chose was perhaps the best one of the lot especially with an actual Giraffe wondering about in our garden near the braai area at about 2am. Wonder site... Absolutely loved it and would surely go again

Rain Farm is very family orientated, which is great as we have kids and it’s exactly what we wanted when planning a family...
