This is a lovely place to stay. I booked to stay there with my friends - Kevin and Lin - from England. Breakfast on the verandah was a great experience, as dozens of different types of birds, including Knysna Touraco (Lourie), came to feed from the bird tables hanging in the tree five feet from us. It was a great...

We spent 5 nights at Kingfisher Country House in 2 rooms - a family room and a double room. Our rooms opened out onto a back patio area with chairs and a table. Very peaceful and private.

Spent a thoroughly enjoyable and relaxing 3 nights at the Kingfisher Country House with a friend.
