Lovely location, very comfortable accommodation and friendly hosts!

Rapids Country Estate is in a stunning, scenic location, albeit off the beaten track. The accommodation is very comfortable and in this way is really value for money. You need a high clearance vehicle at least to get to the venue though - don't try in a sedan! The hosts were very welcoming and friendly with lots of info on what to do. The scenery is lovely, the ambience calm and there is some nice game on the farm. Unlike other estates you really feel you have the place to yourself. Highly recommended for a true getaway to nature, really close to Joburg and Pretoria.

Rustig, beeldskone natuur.

Heerlike plek om by uit te rus en die natuur te geniet. Dullstroom is naby genoeg om vir die dag dinge te gaan doen. Ek sal aanraai om nog kaste/rakke in die eenheid op te sit en aparte tafels vir elke kamer indien daar ander gaste is om nie mekaar te pla nie. Verder was ons kuier heerlik.

Nie 'n goeie nagrus gehad nie.

Die matrasse in die tent kamp kan gerus vervang word, ons het 'n 1000 km gery en glad nie lekker geslaap nie.

Rustige omgewing, mooi natuurskoon en potensiaal om heerlik as 'n groep te kuier.

Waarsku oor grondpad wat 'n uitdaging vir 'n gewone kar sal wees. Voorsien asb. hangplek vir klere (chalet 3). Gee aandag aan privaatheid van toilet. Volop muurproppe - voorsien asb. 2-punt proppe ook. Gasheer en -vrou het uit hulle pad gegaan om ons te verwelkom (vars gebakte piesangbrood en baie hout vir 'n groot bome-vuur). Met meer aandag aan kleiner detail (soos toiletpapierhouer, handdoekreëlings) het die plek hope potensiaal.

Die tente was skoon en netjies. Die ablusieblokke kan egter verbeter.

Die pad soontoe moet liewer met 'n bakkie aangepak word. Dit is egter 'n baie mooi ligging. Die tent verblyf was baie aangenaam, skoon en netjies. Die ablusiegeriewe kan egter verbeter.

Heerlike gerus in die natuur!

Die kombuis het baie min spasie om geregte voor te berei, so meer rakke of pakplek teen die muur vir eetgerei en glase ens sal goed werk.

Rapids Country and Eco Estate's response

Beste Ilana,

Dankie vir die terugvoer en aanbevelings. Ons sal dit beslis in gedagte hou en kyk hoe ons dit geriefliker kan maak.
Ons is bly julle het lekker gerus en hoop om julle weer te ontvang.

Loved staying at Rapids and will definitely be going back.

We stayed in one of the tents for a night and really enjoyed it especially because we were the only people there. The boma/braai area might be a little bit uncomfortable if there are other people staying in the second tent because everyone has to share it but with a group of friends it could be fun. Johan and Hanlie were very friendly and welcoming towards us. As stated the road to the estate is a dirt road and even though we were able to drive it with our very low car I would not recommend it. We did the hike to the waterfall and it was easy however somewhat confusing at times, but the waterfall was breathtaking and a must do if you go. Johan also took us for a morning drive through the estate and we just absolutely loved it. The peacefulness of the area is just what we needed to relax and we will definitely be going back.

Dear Eugenie, thank you for taking the time to post a review. We appreciate your comments and will attempt to improve the experience in these areas where possible. We look forward to seeing you again soon.

Still, rustig, lekker geslaap.

Vir die prys het meer verwag. Eetgerei nie volgens lys nie. 1 vurk. Hele klomp eetlepels en 'n paar steakmesse. Geen koffie/tee stasie nie. Geen warm water in stort nie. Die plek was nie vir ons aankoms voorberei nie.

Rapids Country and Eco Estate's response

Goeiedag Wietz,

Ons is jammer om te verneem dat jou verblyf teleurstellend was. Die saak is met ons personeel opgeneem en sal nie weer herhaal nie. Ons nooi jou graag om ons weer te besoek teen geen koste sodat ons dit kan regstel.

Groete

Ons het dit terdeë geniet.

Die pad was semi-sleg. Die plekkie was puik. Baie wild gesien (met die bergfietse gery). Die waterval was asemrowend. Al die geriewe was daar, wat mens nodig het. Johan was baie hulpvaardig en vriendelik. Dankie. Ek sal weer gaan.

Uiters ontspannend

Die grondpad is bietjie erg, sodra in is by hek verander die gevoel egter na baie positief.

Juweel.

Johan en Hanlie, baie dankie vir julle vriendelike ontvangs en dat ons so lekker by julle kon bly! Die is 'n ware stukkie hemel wat mens na kan ontsnap en net ontspan in die pragtige omgewing. Dit was heerlik, dankie!

Dit was baie rustig, stil en wat mens mens verwag van so plek om te rus!

Die plaasbestuurder was baie behulpsaam en gaan uit sy pad uit om vir 'n mens dit gemaklik en lekker te maak, hulle was regtig baie gasvry.

Very pretty environment, nice and relaxing weekend.

Very nice area you look out onto from the veranda and the room, unbelievably relaxing. The room was also pretty and well equipped for two people. Thank you Johan and Hanelie for your hospitality. It was a great weekend for us.

Baie mooi omgewing, lekker rus naweek.

Baie mooi area waarop mens uitkyk vanaf die stoep en kamer, ongelooflik rustig. Die kamer self was ook mooi en goed toegerus vir 2 mense. Dankie Johan en Hanelie vir julle gasvryheid. Dit was 'n great naweek vir ons.

Opgradering in eenhede kort nog, maar die staproetes is pragtig.

Dis 'n glorified backpackers en daar is kombuistoerusing (mes, vurke, eierspane ens wat in ons eenheid) wat kort. Die oopplan, met glasstort, bad in die middel van die kamer sonder mure, moet jy bereid wees om alles te deel. Sal nie aanbeveel vir vriende van teenoorgestelde geslag wat mekaar nog leer ken nie.

Energised after the weekends rest.

My husband and I had the pleasure of spending a weekend at Rapids Country and Eco Estate and it was awesome. Lovely cottages set in stunning countryside. There are walking trails if you feel like some exercise or you can just sit on the verandah and enjoy the peace and quiet. Also had a lovely game drive and saw many species of buck. Also lots of bird life. If you want a break from the busy city life then this is definitely the place to be. We will definitely be back.

Natuurskoon en rustigheid.

Die huisies is goed uitgerig en gemaklik. Daar is 'n baie lekker braai met lekker braaigeriewe. Verskillende wild om te aanskou en kan redelik naby aan hulle kom. Daar is 'n pragtige staproute na 'n waterval met asemrowende natuurskoon. Ongelooflik baie voëlspesies om te aanskou. Jy kan lekker op die groot stoepe sit en net lekker ontspan met uitsig op die berge in die agtergrond of gaan afkoel in die rivier. Dit was 'n lekker wegbreek van die alledaagse stadslawaai.

Pragtige plek, goeie ligging en lekker stapplek.

Pragtige plek, goed geleë. Pragtige waterval waarheen mens kan stap, piekniek hou en swem as jy lushet vir koue water. Daar is 4 kamers waarvan elke 2 kamers direk langs mekaar is en as dit nie was dat ons die bure geken het nie, sou dit baie ongemaklik wees om so naby mekaar te wees en 'n stoep te deel om te braai. Elke kamer is ook nie volledig toegerus nie en ons moes maar leen so tussen die kamers. Die bestuurder maak ook 'n nuisance van homself deur gereeld en onnodig 'n draai te kom maak op baie ongeleë tye - dit nadat hy die eesrte dag al gesê het hy sal nie onnodig pla nie.
