Incredibly beautiful and private makes a perfect romantic getaway. The owners are friendly and helpful, the facilities are really good and we had an amazing time! You can relax in the hot tub and giant bath or go for a great short hike up the mountain.

Fantastic weekend away. What a great place! Rooms were good. Jacuzzi was awesome. Breakfast was really good and worthwhile. The area is quiet and easy to get to. I would recommend this to all couples looking to get away for a break.

We stayed in one of the new units right against the berg. It was all that we wanted and more - private, peaceful, secluded and classy. Welcome drinks and sherry included, and even nice "house wines" to buy, called the "Frisky Zebra" which was also what the unit was called. The jacuzzi is a bomb! What a relaxing weekend and...

After a grueling Namibian safari for 10 we needed a break for a couple of nights before heading home. Two nights in the Frisky Zebra at Phefumula Cottages was EXACTLY what we needed. The staff are discreet and professional, Jenni and Dave (the owners) are simply wonderful when you need them! The Frisky Zebra (No. 2) is huge, open plan,...
