We were warmly welcomed back by Patricia, Hameed and Claire and not forgetting the lovely Sam, their dog. This is a fabulous place to stay, it's a beautiful house full of...

We arrived at Utopia and were greeted by Patricia and her husband who own the home. They welcomed us with open arms and showed us around. They prepared a delicious dinner for us upon arrival and it felt like we were at home having a family dinner. Breakfast was also incredible with a few different options. Our room was large,...

This is a great place to stay, lovely views and cool breeze. It is out side Nelspruit and at a higher location so benefits from cooler air and views. Rooms are large well appointed and tasteful. The owners are charming. They encourage genet cats and porcupines and bush babies to an area below the communal terrace/ sitting areas ...you get...

Guesthouse high on the hills near Nelspruit, conveniently located a mere 10 minute drive from i'langa mall. We thoroughly enjoyed our weekend here. The whole place, from the rooms to the lounge/reception area, is characterized by an eccentric and personal style. Very nice pool terrace too, with a fabulous view of the surroundings. Perfect for unwinding after a hectic day...

Utopia in Africa was truly utopia! Patricia, the owner, made us feel so at home, when our vacation was interrupted with a family member's hospitalization nearby. She turned lemons into lemonade with her graciousness, taught us so much about South Africa, and we were able to meet many interesting people. The guest house and accommodations were lovely, the services were...

Very friendly, helpful staff and owner. Stunning deck to overlook the nature reserve and enjoy the view and drinks. The decor and especially the paintings and interesting mobiles make this a beautiful place to stay both inside and out. Little touches of attention to detail like good quality hand wash and lotion and bottles of free water in the fridge...

I had forgotten that one has to navigate quite a few steps up and down in this villa and that included steps without a guard rail in our bedroom. Our bathroom was not ventilated and I could see mould starting to appear in the wall paint near the ceiling. The bedroom wardrobe was a rickety affair, quite unbecoming to the...
