Verified reviewexcellent

We have just completed our 3rd visit here and booked for our 4th next year and just can't wait. The whole property has a relaxed and welcoming air but is run to the highest standards. We always have one of the self catering lodges which give us the flexibility to eat or BBQ at the lodge, go to the main house for an evening meal or go to one of the fantastic restaurants which are a short drive away. The views are to die for and you can be as active (with many activities available) or as relaxed as you wish. Don't be put off on your 1st visit by the drive through Sir Lowry's Pass Village as when you enter the huge estate which is gated and very secure you enter another lovely world as you climb the hill/mountain to the property. The added benefit for us this year is access to wi-fi in the self catering lodge for the first time. Rose is a gem and can help you with any query and she does it so willingly. We inadvertently set the panic alarm off and within 3 minutes the security guards were with us checking all was OK. We can't recommend Lalapanzi highly enough!

My girlfriend and I absolutely loved this place (specially her). Just take a look at the photos and those will tell you everything you need to know. But a summary is, the place was really clean, the manageress and chef were both really kind and welcoming. Up in the mountains and incredibly romantic.
