We were recommended...

We stayed at Kwelanga 27-29 June 2014. It was a pleasant and comfortable weekend with plenty of natural beauty and attentive hosts, Petra & Mark. The chalet's are neat with quality beds and linen, and the food served by their restaurant staff is delicious. At night we could hear the calming sound of frogs in the distance, and by day...

We arrived 22:00 in the evening and Mark still welcomed us with a smile. We went to our room and immediately knew that this is our kind of place. The room had an open lounge with a kitchen; two bed rooms and a bathroom with a nice shower. Everything was just beautiful and nicely decorated; slept like a baby on...
