This little hotel is an ancient and original village, renovated by artists in the mountain's high, therefore never too hot. The place is incredibly beautiful, with an amazing view on the reserve with lots of wild animals. The food is fantastic, and so is the service and confort. You are in the middle of nowhere but you eat very well,...

The Venda lodge was so luxurious and a great hideaway from work for the weekend. The staff are incredibly loving and helpful. Joyce's cooking is incredible! The outdoor tub was so fun too. I would highly highly recommend!

We were looking for a place to spend time together, celebrating my dad's 80th, close to Louis Trichardt and found Leshiba, Hamasha Bush Camp online. A perfect setting, in the mountains, no electricity, no cell phone reception, no TV - just time to sit around the fire and visit. From our first phone call to say what time we were...

The place is located on a hill....so when the clouds come in and the sun sets, they tend to drop a little. You will open a bottle of wine in the clouds and finish it above the clouds as the cloud bank drops. Absolutely fantastic. One of the most beautifull, unusual and romantic get aways you can think off. A...

We stayed in one of the luxury suites for two nights with full board. It was absolutely fabulous. The place is beautiful - not only the surrounding plains and wilderness but also the small village full of wonderful details in every little item. Everything is cared for and we had a great experience despite the weather not being too friendly....
