Lovely, very private, Will return again and again,also excellent value for money, well worth the stay. Added bonus is the afternoon game drives in your own vehicle, enjoying a sundowner next to one of the waterholes.

Hoedspruit Delight

Actually had 6 days here and what a pleasure. Great facilities, hosts & staff with lots of wildlife activities close by and on the doorstep. If you are thinking about staying in a wildlife estate and looking at Wild Dog Inn just do it, I don't think you will be disappointed. The main complex and cottages are very good.

I wish I could stay there more days.🤗

The property is beautiful and satisfying, the stuff is very welcoming and kind.

Loved staying at Wild Dog, lovely self catering unit and the highlight was riding my mountain bike through the reserve.

I will return!

Dear Henro,

I really had an amazing time at your lodge. It was beautiful and very quiet which helped me to completely relax.

Everyone was extremely friendly and helpful and the unit was always kept clean and tidy.

I will definitely recommend your lodge and will return hopefully very soon.

Overall rating 5 out of 5

We have been looking for a comfortable, yet reasonably-priced place to stay on our frequent visits to Hoedspruit, and Henro’s cottage will definitely be our primary choice for future trips to the area. Of paramount importance to us is cleanliness, and to find that for instance, the sofas have a removable washable blanket on them was a delight (the hygiene of upholstery is an oft-overlooked point in most lodges), as was the diligent servicing of the flat in our absence. It is a well-appointed place, as all aspects of one’s stay have been considered (from a mini-bar to firewood). We will see you again soon!

Beautiful stay, view and service...very friendly & helpful hosts!

Vicky was a great Hostess. I loved everything, from the moment we confirmed our booking Vicky and Henro immediately started communicating with us regarding our stay, access codes and directions were shared way ahead of our arrival date/time. Vicky welcomed us as we entered, showed us around the cottage and how everything works. Cottage was clean and the view and quietness was exactly what we needed to recharge. Cottage was as advertised or even better. Oh and the friendliness & willingness to help was - top tier. Looking forward to visiting again!
We should have booked a longer stay. We were only there for 2 nights

My stay was just excellent and would love to go back again.
The Accommodation and the owners were just excellent. Our visit was just too short.
I loved the place even the warthog that walked past our patio in the morning.

Great stay and experience at Wild Dog!

We stayed 5 days, family of 6 persons. We had a great stay. The hosts were really helpful with all kinds of information for visiting Hoedspruit and Kruger. Very nice houses and very clean, with great breakfast. When visiting Kruger very early they made a delicious breakfast to go. The accommodation is in the middle of a wild life property. Giraffe, pumbaa, impala, kudu, zebra and even a leopard (did not had the chance to spot him, only heard him in the night 😀).

Beautiful accommodation in a well located reservation.

Vicky and Henro are very friendly and helpful. They were easy to reach for us and super flexible. We felt comfortable :) The rooms are large and the beds extremely comfortable. The terrace is inviting and we enjoyed using the fire pit. The decor is very tasteful.

We loved staying in Henry's villa! It is so peaceful and quiet, yet there is so much to do. You can go walking, cycling or birding in the reserve, which is beautiful and so special with the giraffe, zebra and bucks running around. It honestly is worth it! It was a bonus to be able to go to the Wild Dog Lodge for a drink and a bot of banter, Vicky and Henry were so welcoming! I can highly recommend this place, we LOVED it!
Thank you so much again Vicky and Henry for letting us stay in your beautiful Shawu place. We hope you had a great few days off yourself. We are back to porridge and are missing the vibrant wildlife of South Africa, the sunshine and the beautiful people already... Be sure to see us again! Dianne and Inge

Best bush holiday accommodation

Outstanding accommodation, on the edge of the green belt in the wildlife estate!
Secluded, quiet, tranquil, well equipped with a daily service if you wanted it( which we didn't) who were efficient and discreet.
Fabulous splash pool to keep you cool.
Visited by impala, duiker, warthogs, squirrels and mongoose as well as numerous bird species.
Within a short distance of amenities and a shortish drive to the Kruger Park.
Vicki and Henro are excellent hosts.
I just hope that on my next visit to the bush, that they have availability for me!!
Thanks guys for a fab stay!

Fantastic stay!

Beautiful villa to stay. Nicely decorated, spacious rooms. Wildlife watching from the pool. It's a shame to only stay one night. In addition, there is a supermarket and restaurants nearby.
