Reviews

The property is located in a private estate, spectacularly on the banks of the Olifants River. Unit 9 is located in the shade of an ancient Jackalberry tree where the resident troop of monkeys and a variety of birds keep us busy during our early sunset cocktails on the veranda. Location, location location as the saying goes. We could see a lot of waterbirds including a giant goliath herron fishing in the shallows. A waterbuck lazily wandered in front of our veranda and keep us entertained for long. After our return from our dinner at nearby Three bridges Restaurant (thanks for the recommendation Rina), we thought we return to the city with all the lights glowing in the dark- only to discover a wandering hippo and a herd of impala, resting on our lawn!! What better way to end off an excellent day.

Great house located directly on the banks of the Olifants River. Amazing view from the bedrooms and the terrasse. At night the hippos get out of the water to graze on the meadow in front of the house. We loved it so much that we decided to stay longer!

What a gem! Chalet 10 is probably the best placed chalet in this tranquil but beautiful resort. We saw in 2 nights as many hippos as one would like to see right on our comfortable verandah overlooking the Olifants! There were Nyala, Steenbok, Duiker, the most elusive Bush baby, big Bats and many more to see. The facilities on the resort is also well maintained and since the facility is changing ownership there was nothing at the kiosk barring ice, firewood, fire lighters and cold water. This however did not take away the cleanliness, the friendly demeanor of the receptionist, who was quick to douse my skepticism regarding the notices to warn about lions with camera trapping pictures showing the lions roaming the property at night and the rest of the facilities are well maintained. Thank you! The stay was super memorable and the chalet well-kept, clean and superbly furnished. A bonus are the aircons!

I will obviously choose Ekuthuleni the next time I visit Hoedspruit. My friends and co-workers can't stop asking me a lot of questions about the place and they always want to see the pictures every now and then. Your set up, location and the house arrangement itself is a wowwwww...... Eish. the palce is so well arranged and the spot this guys choose is very nice with the hippos giving it at night and the other animals you hear running around the garden at night. The Crocodiles in the morning busking at the sun and their sizes.

We had an excellent stay at no 9. The rooms were well appointed and arrangements made by Rina was spot on. Thanks for the dinner recommendation!

Excellent dinner at nearby Three Bridges Restaurant, result in us driving back from Graskop to have a second dinner there!!

We'll be back at the chalets soon.

The river view was a pleasant surprise. Visit from Hippos every night. The prolific bird life along the river will have us returning again and again. Bushbabies visited at night. Was a magical break away with beloved family.We will definitelyh be back.

It was a very relaxing weekend with friends. The owner really went out of his way to accommodate my niece - she is in a wheelchair. Put some handles in the bathroom to make it easier for her and more wheelchair friendly. This chalet is wheelchair friendly, spacious and even the bathroom - she liked the bath with the hand shower. Rina the owner very friendly and accommodating as well as Boela. thanks we had a great weekend and loved the surrounding and outside patio and BBQ area.
