Review by Jeff Murray (Stoneville, Western Australia)

Everything about Idle & Wild was enjoyable. The outdoor setting is picturesque, the room furnishings comfortable, the service commendable and the breakfasts a feast. My wife and I thoroughly enjoyed our stay.

Review by Kgaugelo Mosomane (Pretoria)

It was my birthday weekend and the best gift was to be hosted at idle & wild. The stuff members were very friendly including their dogs hahahaha.

The place was clean and tidy, very good for a romantic getaway holiday. I'm definitely going back again.

Review by Thomassen (Zwolle)

We stayed 1 night in the B&B room and 3 nights in the self-catering cottage.
Both where spacious and clean.
Wonderful garden with swimmingpool, perfect breakfast on the veranda.

Review by Rev Alan Hall (USA)

A five star B&B at an economy price. Wonderful, full breakfasts, clean accomodation, grounds are both beautiful and well maintained, hosts very cordial, lots of little extras...even washed our car! Why spend more when you can be so well cared for?

Very Good

Review by Rob And Annemie (Maastricht)

Beautiful B&B with a lovely garden to stay in. Nice rooms and good breakfast. Friendly owners.
A pitty that the pool was dirty so we could not swim while it was very hot. Advice: better maintenance of the pool.

Review by Rolf Galpin (Bensheim, Germany)

Idle and Wild is definitely the nicest place we stayed at and Darryl and Christie are most helpful hosts we got to know during our entire trip through South Africa.

Darryl and Christie were always eager and able to advise us in every issue imagenable. On their recommendation we bought a WildCard which saved us quite a bit of money. Also the other Staff is very friendly. (e.g. after a day tour to the Kruger Park we found the next morning that the gardener had washed our car.)

Breakfast was excellent and a perfect way to start the day. We also took advantage of the packed breakfast that gave us opportunity to get into the KNP nice and early.

Also we felt very secure, as one had to pass 2 security gates to get onto the property, with the first gate allways being watched by a security guy.

The garden is very impressive and is rich in birdlife and we found that Idle and Wild was the only place that looked nicer in reality than on the photos we found on the internet.

If possible we will definitely come back!

Review by Antoinette Mazibuko (Johannesburg)

I have to just say that we had a lovely time there and Christie and Darryl really went out of their to make us feel at home. The ambience is so charming and peaceful and it was exactly what we needed.

Breakfast was something to really look forward to every morning. Darryl, the kids really enjoyed the quad-bike rides and they want to go again. Long story... short! I would recommend Idle and Wild to any couple or family who just want a break from the hustle and bustle of the city and enjoy what blessed us with.

Big thumbs up to you guys...hoping to see you again in the near future.
Best regards,
Antoinette, Prince and Kids.

A beautiful and peaceful place!
Our hosts were charming and helpful. On their recommendation we dined next door at 'Summerfields' which we found excellent!
