We stayed in one of the new units right against the berg. It was all that we wanted and more - private, peaceful, secluded and classy. Welcome drinks and sherry included, and even nice "house wines" to buy, called the "Frisky Zebra" which was also what the unit was called. The jacuzzi is a bomb! What a relaxing weekend and...

The spacious cottages are self-catering and there's an option to order meals which are delivered to the cottage. We selected dinners for the two evenings and both meals comprising starters, mains and...

This getaway exceeded our expectations in every way. We planned a quiet weekend away where we could just relax away from the busy city life, but we got so much more. This was a luxurious weekend from the minute we arrived. A refreshing welcome drink and friendly staff was just the start. I'm so pleased we arranged for one of...

After a grueling Namibian safari for 10 we needed a break for a couple of nights before heading home. Two nights in the Frisky Zebra at Phefumula Cottages was EXACTLY what we needed. The staff are discreet and professional, Jenni and Dave (the owners) are simply wonderful when you need them! The Frisky Zebra (No. 2) is huge, open plan,...

Ive been longing to visit Phefumula for longer then 3 years, and this year I decided to spoil myself on my birthday and book 2 nights. We stayed in Lepards Leap and the cottage was very well equipped and I can not fault the unit at all. I am however unhappy with some of the logistical/management arrangements. Jenni sent an...

This place is truly amazing. We Have booked to go for our second visit next weekend. Jenni and her team are exceptional. The cottages have all the luxuries you could ask for. If you are looking for a romantic private getaway this is most certainly the place :)
