We had a wonderful stay.

Very beautiful house and spacious. It's super clean. But the road is not nice at all. I think a bit of roadwork is advisable.

Peaceful and beautiful environment.

Great location in the bushveld. Great for walking or driving with lots of wildlife. The closest neighbour is out of sight and earshot, so it is very peaceful. We had kudu right outside our cottage, a family of squirrels, baboons, and loads of different birds. There is little to no cellphone reception, but it was kind of nice to be unreachable.

Private, peaceful and re-energising - We loved our stay!

We had an amazing stay and felt we chose the perfect place on the game farm. The peace and tranquility were absolutely incredible. Our dogs had an amazing time too, exploring the nearby bush and being absolutely fascinated by the squirrels in the nearby tree. We were lucky enough to spot a nagapie (bush baby) and many other wildlife species. On our way out, we had the pleasure of spotting a porcupine. I will just advise guests to remember to pack Tabard as the pepper ticks are quite rife. Thank you for a great stay, and your staff is amazing!

So glad you enjoyed your stay with us and loved the farm as much as we do. See you all again!

If this is not Africa, what else could be?

A must for everyone that wants to experience the tranquillity and silence of the African bush in a luxury convenient setting. Do need a high clearance vehicle for the last 20 km to the reserve.

Paradys.

Vryheid van beweging, die wonderlike natuur en mooi rotsformasies op hierdie stukkie paradys het ons vir 'n 2de keer na Izintaba gelok. Die wildbesigtiging was goed. Alhoewelons gerieflik gebly het voel mens tog dat Duiker kothuis 'n goeie opgradering benodig met goeie meubelment op die stoep en in die boma. Die inklok en uitklok tye is bietjie laat 15:00 en vroeg 9:00. Maar ons hoop om weer op Izintaba uit te span.

Paradise.

Freedom of movement, the wonderful nature and beautiful rock formations on this piece of paradise attracted us to Izintaba for a second time. The wildlife viewing was good. Although we had a comfortable stay, one feels that Duiker cottage needs a good upgrade with good furniture on the porch and in the boma. The check-in and check-out times are a little late at 15:00 and early at 9:00. But we hope to venture out again on Izintaba.

Family break away.

Izinitaba is a beautiful reserve with so much to see. The bird life is amazing and we were lucky to see some we have never seen before. The house is so private and quiet that you truly get to rest from everyday life. Please do not get a tv! Our kids didn’t even realise there wasn’t one. Best time had by all. My only complaint/concern was that our upstairs room was infested with moths and no one was able to sleep there. I am aware it’s nature and you are in the bush. The linen on this bed was also damp and smelly. However, it was a minor issue. The stay was fantastic and the wildlife amazing. We sat at the dam and were amazed to see so many antelope come down. Sunset rock is so beautiful it’s like looking at a piece of heaven. We will definitely be back and will be recommending family and friends to come.

Lovely relaxing stay. Hiking, biking, game drives. Great place if traveling with a dog.

Unit was clean. Space to roam on the farm. Game was very tame. Friendly and helpful service. Please don't go, so we can have more space to book.

Ons was Ma - Do daar - die hele plek en swembad vir onsself! Fietsgery en wild en voëls gekyk.

Dit was wonderlik om so in die natuur te wees en geen ander geluide te hoor nie, behalwe die van die natuur. Die rondawel is pragtig ingerig en daar is alles wat jy dalk kan nodig kry. Daar is sanderige paaie en dis nogal 'n uitdaging met 'n MBT! Ons sal dit vir seker aanbeveel.

We were there Mon - Thu - the whole place and pool to ourselves! Cycling and watching wildlife and birds.

It was wonderful to be in nature like this and hear no other sounds except those of nature. The rondavel is beautifully furnished and has everything you could possibly need. There are sandy roads and it's quite a challenge with an MBT! We would recommend it for sure.

Die paaie binne is slegs vir 4x4 voertuie met goeie grondvryhoogte. Roetes wat gemerk is vir 4x4 moet liewer deur ervare 4x4 entoesiaste gery word.

Die huise is skoon binne maar die gasstoof staan te naby die vrieskas. Die paaie binne is byna onbegaanbaar vir 'n 4x2 aangedrewe voertuig. Indien die grondvryhoogte op gewone 4x2 voertuie laag is, gaan hulle skade onderaan voertuie kry. Ons het met 'n 4x2 met taamlik grondvryhoogte gesukkel en moes 2 keer onsself uitgrawe uit sand. Daar is volop wild en veld is pragtig groen. Heerlik om in te stap enige tyd van dag of nag.

This review is being shown in its original language.
Translate to English.

The roads inside are only for 4x4 vehicles with good ground clearance. Routes marked for 4x4 should preferably be driven by experienced 4x4 enthusiasts.

The houses are clean inside but the gas stove is too close to the freezer. The roads inside are almost impassable for a 4x2 powered vehicle. If the ground clearance on regular 4x2 vehicles is low, they will get damage to the bottom of the vehicles. We struggled with a 4x2 with quite a bit of ground clearance and had to dig ourselves out of sand twice. There is plenty of wildlife and fields are beautifully green. Great to walk in at any time of day or night.

Beste bosveldervaring ooit!

Goed toegeruste en stylvolle grasdak-chalet (Duiker) met geen ander mens in sig nie: net veld, voëls en diere. 'n Lafenis vir die siel! Geen TV, winkels en Malls naby. Selfone is weggepak en slegs gebruik om foto's te neem. Ons verkies dit so. Wees goed voorberei met nodige proviand. Ons twee honde het afgekoel in die dam. Swembad lieflik en skoon. Sunset Rock is 'n móét vir sonsopkomste en -ondergange. Stap- en fietsry-roetes duidelik gemerk. Was nie nodig om fietsryroetes elders te loop soek nie. Paaie is ook goed onderhou. Andrew en Nikki is twee uitsonderlike, gasvrye eienaars wat self lief vir die veld is. Ons familie sal beslis weer Izintaba besoek en in Duiker tuisgaan. Baie dankie.

Best woodland experience ever!

Well-equipped and stylish thatched chalet (Duiker) with no other people in sight: only field, birds and animals. An experience for the soul! No TV, shops and Malls nearby. Cell phones were packed away and only used to take pictures. We prefer it that way. Be well prepared with necessary provisions. Our two dogs cooled off in the pond. Pool lovely and clean. Sunset Rock is a must for sunrises and sunsets. Walking and cycling routes clearly marked. There was no need to look for cycling routes elsewhere. Roads are also well maintained. Andrew and Nikki are two exceptional, hospitable owners who love the field themselves. Our family will definitely visit Izintaba again and stay in Duiker. Thank you very much.

Being off-grid carries unpleasant surprises.

The reserve only has solar power. No hair dryers allowed, no TV, no internet. This is fine for a bush experience, but it rained the whole time we were there and we sat in the dark during the day time, as we were told to use as little power as possible (i.e. in case there was not enough power for the fridge etc.). The cottage is spacious and well equipped, but in need of renewal. Tatty furniture, broken glass table etc. At no time did we meet the owners, but the receptionist was welcoming and professional. We left a day early. Obviously not the establishment's fault that it was raining, but there is no back-up plan in case of adverse weather.

Fantastiese Afrika-rustigheid.

Ons was slegs een nag daar, maar is vriendelik en individueel gegroet deur die eienaars. Die rigtingaanwysers was redelik goed hoewel Google maps ons mislei het. Jy moet so ent aan ry om die ingang te kry. Die uitsig om die sonsondergangdek was spesiaal. Ons huis was netjies en funksioneel. Die kinders was mal oor die boonste soldervloer-beddens. Die eenheid was effe naby aan sy bure. Die swembad was rêrig spesiaal. My dogters het geniet om te swem terwyl vlêrmuise water drink saam hulle en 'n klein padda in 'n piep stemmetjie kwaak.

Fantastic African tranquility.

We were only there one night, but were greeted friendly and individually by the owners. The directions were pretty good although Google maps misled us. You have to drive a long way to get to the entrance. The view around the sunset deck was special. Our house was neat and functional. The kids loved the upstairs loft beds. The unit was a bit close to its neighbours. The pool was really special. My daughters enjoyed swimming while bats drank water with them and a little frog croaked in a squeaky little voice.

Heerlik, heerlik heerlik!

Ek en my vrou het in die Zebra huisie geslaap wat meer as ruim was. Alles was in orde en meer as verwag. Die stort was warm en heerlik. Ons kon rondry soos ons wou, die sundowner deck het skitterend gewerk en dit was voorwaar 'n uitsonderlike ervaring in alle opsigte. Daar was niks maar niks kort nie. As daar 'n aanbeveling gedoen mag word om hierdie ervaring soveel meer te kan maak sou ek sê dit sou baie lekker wees as daar by elke braaiplekkie 'n pakkie hout en aanstekers neergesit word en dit kan sommer in die prys ingesluit word.

Lovely, lovely, lovely.

My wife and I stayed in the Zebra house that was more than spacious. Everything was good and more than expected. The shower was hot and lovely. We were able to drive around as we liked, the sundowner deck worked wonderfully and it was an exceptional experience in every way. There was nothing short. If a recommendation could be made to make this experience even better it would be that a bag of wood and firelighters be put at every braai and it can then be included in the price.

Dit was 'n fees!

Omdat dit 'n stil naweek was, was ons sonder ons medewete opgegradeer na 'n 6-bed toe i.p.v. die 4-bed wat ons verwag het. Dankie vir goeie diens, Annah! Dit was lieflik, stil. Die natuur is pragtig, met genoeg wild in die omgewing. Ons het ons eie swembadjie by Kudu chalet gehad - ek kan nie wag om weer te besoek nie. 'n Naweek is te kort ...

It was a feast!

Because it was a quiet weekend, we were without knowing about it upgraded to a 6 bed instead of a 4 bed which we expected. Thanks for the good service Annah! It was lovely and quiet! The natural surroundings are beautiful with enough game in the area. We had our own swimming pool at Kudu chalet and I can't wait to visit again. A weekend is just too short.

It was very nice, peaceful and quiet. Forgetting the world and having a very great bush experience that is full of peace. Really had an amazing time going for a game drive and seeing a lot of animals. The place itself is out of this world.

Die Duiker rondawel is pragtig geleë, en baie privaat, die kos wat vir ons voorberei is, was uit die boonste rakke. Ons het dit geniet om te kan gaan draf en fietsry en het heelwat wild gesien. Ek sal definitief Izintaba kan aanbeveel.
