The Blue Cottages Country House
Set in remote low veld bush savanna against a backdrop of the magnificent Drakensberg escaparpment, The Blue Cottages Country House comprises a number of thatched cottages in a beautiful tropical garden.

Buried deep within acres of orange groves, they are stylishly decorated in Afro-Colonial style with antiques and artefacts collected from across Africa.

Home-cooked three-course dinners are served by lamp light on the farmhouse veranda overlooking the lush tropical gardens.

The stunning Blyde River Canyon route is nearby as are opportunites for rafting, hiking and birdwatching. Kruger Park is an hour`s drive away. This is a perfect place to rest and relax after a day’s exploring or as a welcome pause from your journey.

Blue Cottages Country House is an enchanting overnight stop en route to the Kruger National Park and the Panoramic Route and Blyde River Canyon on the R527.

We both enjoyed the friendly atmosphere at meal times, the friendly and freely given advise of places to visit. We enjoyed the rondavel that we stayed in and the fabulous grounds of your property. The meals were super and the packed breakfast on the day when we visited Kruger National Park was a nice touch that is always part of the story of that day when we talk to friends. Our stay with you was one of the many highlights of our trip to South Africa and Namibia.

The owners are very nice and welcoming. The place is beautiful. Dinner was a bit pricey for what we got. We had a great time.

The service was friendly and welcoming. The accommodation was a little on the primitive side, while clean and functional.
