WE had an amazing time at Tugela Rapids. The place is rustic but well decorated, the surroundings stunning, the views incredible, and you have absolutely everything you need in the kitchen! Roz was super charming and always willing to make your stay pleasant. We will definitely come back!Quinton and Maria

Roz and Trev have built the most "get-away-from-it all" accommodation that is a true paradise. The location is 4km from the road and so the only noise disturbance is that of the Tugela River flowing beneath the deck and the chatter of the abundant birds. The accommodation is described as rustic, but the beds are amazingly comfortable, the kitchen was the best equipped one we had during our 3 week tour of South Africa. The lapa was so comfortable and cosy with its sofas and open fire. We stayed with our children, aged 10, 12 and 14, who enjoyed making use of the tubes to float in the river....

Braaiing, tubing and swimming in the Tugela, hiking, feeding the lambs, stargazing, catching up with old friends, snoozing, reading a book, sundowners on the deck: we had a fabulous Easter at Tugela Rapids!A wonderful secluded getaway, built with stones from the land, wood from the forest and grass from the veld, powered by solar and gas and fresh air, and fueled by the hospitality of Roz and Trevor: a gem!

Absolutely outstanding spot and incredibly hospitable people. Thank you to Trevor and Ros for making our stay one of these best EVER. We LOVED every minute spent on your farm and can't wait to return again.

It's a lovely place and we enjoyed the privacy. Mosquitoes and flies seems to be a huge problem though.
