About La Roca Guesthouse

At La Roca Guesthouse you can enjoy luxurious and elegant accommodation, sumptuous breakfasts and fantastic panoramic views of the adjoining Nature Reserve and Northern Drakensberg Mountains. Our approach at La Roca Guesthouse is warm and welcoming and the quality of our service ensures that guest’s individual needs are catered for and their privacy respected.

Only 2 minutes drive from the centre of Nelspruit, La Roca is the ideal base for business or pleasure. The Kruger National Park, with its spectacular game viewing; Blyde River Canyon - the third largest in the world; and the quaint historic town of Pilgrim’s Rest can all be visited in a day trip and Nelspruit also makes an ideal gateway for exploring Swaziland and Mozambique.


The five standard rooms and six luxury rooms have been individually decorated, each with its own unique character. They all have private entrances and either a private balcony or patio. Our luxury rooms have separate bath and shower, while the standard rooms have shower only.

All rooms are stylishly appointed and fully equipped with air conditioning, ceiling fans, mini-bar; satellite-TV; tea and coffee making facilities. Bath, hand and pool towels, body wash and shampoo are also provided.


Tuck into our sumptuous breakfast in the serene environment of our thatched lapa, surrounded by the sound of birds and mountain views. Delicious daily cooked specials and a large buffet of cold meats, cheeses, cereals, juice, bread and muffins - a perfect start to any day!


Come and enjoy a refreshing splash in our large pool which is surrounded by impressive granite rocks and lush palm trees. The pool terrace enjoys magnificent views of the Nature Reserve and mountains over which the sun sets - a great spot to kick back with a relaxing sundowner.

La Roca is set in a lush sub-tropical garden strewn with huge granite boulders and there are plenty of interesting nooks and crannies to discover for some privacy or quiet-time. There is an enchanting area for log-fires or for group braais (BBQ’s) in the garden.


Arrangements can be made for airport transfers, restaurant bookings, activities in the region. Laundry service available on site.
