Our second visit was as good as the first one! Ilara and Robbie make great hosts and Plumbago is the ideal place to stop over en route to the Kruger National Park or if you are exploring the Escarpment. We can also recommend requesting dinner (although you need to do so before arrival) - absolutely fabulous after a long drive....

Ilara is living her dream of providing benchmark SA accommodation with delicious and varied cuisine in a secluded, private and accessible location just 20 minutes from Kruger. Breakfasts are a kaleidoscope of colourful fresh ingredients, and the four-course dinners in the evening are feasts to look forward to ahead of a hard day's game drive. Dishes are carefully and expertly...

Located approx. 15km outside of Hazyview (keep directions), wonderful guesthouse located in the hills. Rooms have a wonderful atmosphere, the owner (Ilara) very nice and provide good hints. Breakfast rich. All in all highly recommended.

What a beautiful place Plumbago Guest House is. Situated very close to Kruger Park, surrounded by avocado and banana plantations, it is a little piece of paradise in this very beautiful part of the world. Every comfort has been considered - the chalets are large and well furnished, comfy beds, beautiful gardens and swimming pool, nice robes for use around...

Plumbago guest house outside of Hazyview was absolutely spectacular! The setting was breathtaking, with an amazing view of the Kruger National Park in the distance. The suite was amazing and offered everything one would expect for a 5 star accommodation. Illara and Robbie were wonderful and made us quite simply, feel right at home. The attention to detail in the...

I have visited Plumbago often in the last 5 years. Ilara and Robbie truly understand the hospitality industry and are kind and generous hosts. Nothing is too much trouble and their attention for details is amazing. The guest house has wonderful views of the surrounding area and there is a relaxed atmosphere to it. The rooms/cottages are set in a...
