Well appointed rooms with friendly staff and excellent service. This guest house is an ideal stop over for visitors entering Kruger Park at Punda Maria or Pafuri. Lovely restaurant and bar with tasty menu. Mini golf and farm animals with play area for children.

We booked into Ultimate Guesthouse as a stopover on our way to the Kruger National Park. It was very reasonable (R 900 for the night) and we had a big 2-bedroomed unit with a full kitchen.

Mona is the Inn Keeper of The Ultimate Guesthouse. She always welcomes you as if you are family and possibly considers guests her family. If you have a request Mona will try to accommodate you, we have been visiting Mona's guesthouse since the early 2000's and try to visit each time we pass through Louis Trichardt. Special place to visit.

Arrived on a Friday so the work & conference warriors were absent which was perfect. The room was superb value and really comfortable. The breakfast was excellent. This place caters for the entire spectrum of travelers and I would Highly recommend it as a base to explore Venda and this wonderful part of South Africa.

We try and visit for lunch one weekend in a month and have never been disappointed with the food and drink. The scenery is so tranquil and really helps to rid oneself of the buzz of every day life. Worth a visit definitely!

Perfect stopover for the Kruger national park where we were heading. Large comfortable room with all the usual amenities. Excellent breakfast and evening meal. Recommended. Note the access road is sand but easily negotiated.
