Hawkshead Guest Farm offers comfortable accommodation at affordable prices.

Situated just off the N4 highway, 15kms west of Nelspruit, Hawkshead is a convenient and tranquil base from which to explore the many attractions of the Lowveld. The scenic beauty of the Panorama route and the excitement of the Kruger National Park are all within an hour`s drive.

There are also many attractions closer to home, including the Sudwala Caves and some outstanding golf courses.

A swimming pool, games room and gym are on-site if you are feeling active.

Breakfast is available at an extra cost.

Health and Climate:
Hawkshead Guest Farm is not in a malarial area and prophylactics are not required whilst staying here. However, Malaria medication is a good idea if you are carrying on to the Kruger Park or Mozambique for a stay, especially during the summer.

Summers in the Lowveld are often hot and humid, whilst the winters are very dry with fairly low temperatures (4 to 8 degrees)at night and early morning, but lovely, warm days (mid-20s). Winter is an excellent time to visit the Kruger Park because of the short grass and the lack of groundwater which means that the animals have to go to waterholes and dams to drink.

Besides a swimming pool, there is a games room /mini conference facility with table-tennis table, pool table, darts and football table. A small but well-equipped gym is next door to the games room.

Guests can enjoy the abundant bird-life and explore the koppie and surrounding area.

The accommodation was really nice. Except few things like, fridge and gas stove, which had some problems. But anyway these things can be fixed. Prefer a phone to ring reception when needed and should have more TV channels for entertainment.

All in all we liked our stay and will go again.
