This acclaimed boutique hotel is a nostalgic stopover close to Kruger National Park.
Just half an hour’s drive from Kruger National Park, this intimate hotel is an inviting home-like space of classic style and warm, personalised service. It’s an ideal base for independent tours like our Icons of Southern Africa or Cape Town, Sabi Sands & Mozambique suggested itineraries, where you can easily combine your stay in South Africa with onward travel to Victoria Falls and Mozambique thanks to the hotel’s proximity to Kruger airport. An hour and 15 minutes’ drive takes you to Blyde River Canyon, where you can peer out to far-reaching valley views as the mist clears from God’s Window viewpoint.
Start your day with a generous breakfast spread of pastries and cooked-to-order dishes – the Country Boutique Hotel Restaurant focuses on using seasonal and local ingredients and can cater to most dietary requirements. There’s a 25-metre pool to cool off in and lovely gardens where you can sit out and relax. The hotel has just 22 rooms which each has its own character – think four poster beds, bright cushions and classic seating and access to a terrace, garden or balcony.
