Idle&Wild in Kiepersrol is a "home from home" accommodation to stay when on holiday. Very neat and tidy accommodation. Excellent service and very hospitable. To enjoy a super and relaxing holiday I will always recommend Idle&Wild.

Although we missed a tv, everything else about Idle & Wild was perfect, the cottage was very well equipped, the gardens and bird life excellent. Our host, Christie was very friendly and made us feel very welcome.

Thank you for your lovely review. It is great to get back to nature and enjoy a break away from all the stresses of modern day. People enjoy the swimming pool and sauna in the garden without any worries.

A very nice setting, with super friendly staff that helps out with information on the plans you have. We stayed in 2 rooms in stead of the rondavels, which was maybe a bit less idyllic, but the rooms were nice and spacious. On the plus side, we had wifi in our rooms.
