An ideal spot to spend some quality time with the family away from the hustle and bustle of Joburg. Great hosts which always make a difference when staying at hotels etc. I would definitely recommend this as a base for your Kruger holidays

Friendly owners and neat private accommodation. Will definitely go there again. Great place to stay at when you are looking for something unique . They also have back up UPS systems in the rooms for loadshedding which is great as it powers the fan and lights!

A beautiful stay in a wonderful garden with lot of birds and flowers. Very warm host with a good eye for little friendly details for the guests as the daily muffin we received for the road Accommodation is clean and well equipped. A great breakfast with delicious fruitsalade and the adventure omelet is worth to taste!

The rondavels are great, clean and in a beautiful garden. The host is a walking encyclopedia you can ask everything …..he knows. The son is a bird photografer . The breakfast is fine and more than enough. The pool is very clean and there is also a smal lake . When you arrive from the road there is a gate when this is closed you need to phone the nr is mentioned on the gate so make sure you have a phone

Connie and Tinus excellent as usual. Looked after us even though we turned up early, giving us a chance to shop and prep for the Kruger. Unit was superb and grounds a delight to walk through. Thankyou.

We had such a wonderful experience @idleandwild. Our host Conny was amazing. She made us feel very welcome and at home. She walked the extra mile 😃 for us. The honeymoon lodge was romantic and very convenient. The garden looked pretty 🤩 and our breakfast was nice, we recommend ‘The Adventure’ 😉. Restaurant Tanks is a good restaurant in the neighbourhood. 10+

Its our last week at our retreat in the lowveld. Treated royally by the crew. Wish we could stay longer. Like all travel industry places here the lack of overseas visitors is not good. Come you foreigners you've had your jabs. This cosy friendly place so close to the Kruger is a must.

This is the 3rd time I’ve stayed at Idle and Wild which I think says a lot about this little piece of paradise. Couldn’t find fault with anything apart from my rather well done bacon😂. Will be returning with my children later this year. It’s such a convenient stop coming from Joburg to Kruger. Well done all at Idle and Wild
