"Wow! Wild Horses has to be experienced at least once in a lifetime. Must be one of the most beautiful settings in South Africa. Cannot find one thing to falter. The attention to detail is flawless. Rooms a lovely size. All amenities provided. Meals superb. Would definitely recommend for a weekend getaway. Cannot wait to return."

"I had an excellent two night stay. The setting of the lodge, overlooking the dam, is stunning, as is the local scenery. The room was clean and very comfortable, and the general ambiance of the venue was pleasant and welcoming. The food was of excellent quality and there was a nice wine list that had been carefully thought through.A great venue for 'chilling', and the staff are all welcoming, friendly and extremely helpful. I will definitely be returning."
