We just spent one night for a quick getaway from Johannesburg. It's a truly stunning location, under-stated in its beauty. We enjoyed the 20 mins hike available within the property boundaries Service is very genuine and you feel welcome We were just disappointed by the food quality at dinner...overcooked lamb and a weird vinaigrette all over an otherwise good springbok...

What a wonderful surprise. If you are looking for upper-lip corporate, do not come here. If you want to visit the most lovely piece of nature with personal service rendered with a smile, then be sure to come. Corporate retreats and work shops are also welcome, they can host 20 people with private facilities. Be sure to do the hiking...

As it has always been, Whispering Pines is our top secret romantic hideaway. Alex and the staff looked after us in their normal five star fashion, breakfast, lunch and dinner was as always prepared with care and presented with class, and spending time with a bottle of wine under the big tree, I can't find the words to describe how...

We had the most relaxing fabulous stay at Whispering Pines Country Estate. The rooms are spacious and we loved sitting on our private deck watching the abundant bird life. The food is spectacular and Alex and his staff went the extra mile to make our stay enjoyable. From spa treatments to relaxing in hammocks under the enormous trees was fantastic....

Best service staff I have ever experienced. The place is not fancy but it has all the right amenities (including wood fire place in the rooms). It's peaceful, has isolated and private rooms, with great comfort-food type meals. Highly recommended for work outings or romantic excursions.

What an amazing weekend away. We had been there 10 years ago and planned another trip. We didn't think it was possible to improve on the excellent service and food that we received, but we were wrong. The service and food was outstandingly. The staff were so accommodating and so friendly. The rooms was so clean and comfortable. Thank you...
