What Our Guests Have To Say
We will definitely return when in the area again and will be sure to bring more guests along. The views from the Eagle’s Nest were just breathtaking and I wished we could stay there longer.
Nina Du Plooy
Wow what an amazing stay! From the magnificent Eagles Nest accommodation to the food, spa and amazing staff as well as the informative game drive… Everything was incredible. I LOVED my stay and will definitely be back!
The landscape and atmosphere is wonderful. The service from the staff was excellent. The game drive added a cherry on top and the food was divine. Definitely worth staying for peace and tranquillity. Thank you.
A luxurious night away, gorgeous and affordable spa treatments, adventurous game drivers, sundowners with a view, outdoor dinner dates, friendly staff! Absolutely love Gwahumbe and all it has to offer.
