We spent 3 nights at the porcupine ridge and we loved the lovelyness of Janet and John. They gave us plenty of information about the surrounding and were very helpful! The room was very clean and spaceful and if you like home-made breakfast with plenty of things to taste it's definitely a place for you.

We stayed here for three nights in Feb 2013 and really enjoyed the experience. It was used as a base for touring Blyde River Canyon and the surrounding area and was ideally located for this. The town of Sabie is only a few kilometres away with good restaurants (Wild Fig Tree and Woodsman both recommended). Porcupine Ridge's setting is glorious-a... More

I booked at Porcupine for the 28th and 29th November after seeing some good reviews on this website. The place was easy to find and we were received by John. John was warm and welcoming. It would have been great to know about the 500 to 1000m of gravel road to the guest house. When Janet came back, my wife... More
