At Slievyre we woke refreshed by the peaceful surroundings and couldn’t wait to see what animals had come to visit each morning. The thatched chalets are cool on hot days and cosy on colder evenings. The lapa was a ‘gesellig’ place to cook and eat and chat round the fire. On the game drive and our self drives we were treated to sightings of baby giraffe, crocodiles, blue cranes and ostriches who tried to race us to the road’

Really enjoyed our stay. Our cottage was very neat and well equipped. The staff were very friendly and helpful. A very nice place to just relax and enjoy nature. Would definitely go back.

The farm allows hunting during the season, but only to keep the numbers of the game down.

We loved this place and We had a very relaxing time away in the zebra cottage with our kids. The cottage is so lovely and has everything you need and so great having the pool right in front. We saw lots of giraffe which our daughter enjoyed. It was the perfect place for us, our toddler and baby. The only down side is the quality of the bath and shower water but they do provide you with water for drinking and cooking but overall we absolutely loved it. Perfect place to get away from it all. Our daughter loved the animals coming up the fence.

We really appreciated the away from it all feel, the generous pile of complimentary firewood,bottled borehole water and views onto the Midlands bush veld. Ample bedroom space, sensible linen and firm mattresses. Our unit had a Wonderful spacious lounge well equipped homely kitchen AND our dishes were washeddaily.
