          We stayed for three nights at the Lebombo guesthouse. This guest house was designed for corporate stays, and the four bedrooms are separate to the living area so difficult for families with children. Although the view over the river is spectacular, One is really too...More

          Location was great and amenities were nice. We would totally stay here again. The rondavels are the way to go. Great safari trips out of the rest camp too. Lots of wildlife sightings in the river while eating dinner.

          wanttotravel_9
          hi I have been trying to make a reservation for one of the guest houses for August next year. I phoned central reservations as they opened at 7.30 on the day accommodation becomes available however these units were already reserved. Do these units get reserved by travel agents? If so does anyone know the name of agents that I could contact to make a reservation with them? many thanks
