Luxury ‚bed in the bush‘
Spacious and charming twin cottages, in the conveniently located backwater of Kampersrus, outside of Hoedspruit. In close proximity to the Blyde River Canyon, the Orpen Gate, and Kruger National Park (KNP). (75km)

The space

Each single bedroom cottage designed around ‘honeymoon’ couples, or for a peaceful getaway after a day’s outing but can be adapted for an additional (child) on enquiry. Or combined will accommodate 4-6. Each cottage has a generous open plan lounge dining area with mobile kitchen island which allows convenient sharing of the meal preparation. Each unit offers modern bath and shower and walk in storage space. Clever design ensure climate control and cool well ventilated living space is a given. Of course the view from the bedroom is onto the dominating and awesome mountain peaks. The requisite mosquito netting is in place. Tastefully furnished interior is a feature. Cook in or ‘braai’ on the outdoor facility conveniently close but as in the bush. Relax on the ample patio while doing so.

Units are self-catering and well equipped with basics such as oil, spices and vinaigrette; Coffee, tea, rusks, milk and sugar. Laundry services can be arranged in the case of extended stay; there is so much to do:
Expect to hear the lions roar at sundown, and the distant call of hyena.

Ukuthula cottages are nestled in the village of Kampersrus at the foot of the awesome ‘Mariepskop’ in the southern Drakensberg Mountains. We are a ‘stone’s throw’ away from the Moholoholo animal rehabilitation centre complex (Stoffel qv).
We are a short drive from the busier town of Hoedspruit and in short radius of many attractions such as the Blyde Canyon (third deepest in the world) and Swadini, the Blyde dam, the cheetah, endangered species centre, the reptile park, Bistro Mamma Mambas, iNyoka art gallery and our Ukuthula souvenir arts, crafts & design shop, and of course the awesome KNP ……..
Horse riding in the nearby Moholoholo nature reserve and guided hikes in the mountains in Kampersrus and can be arranged upon request.

Hanny and Bill are great hosts. The Lodge is very comfy, every room is furnitured very nicely and functional. Everything was perfectly clean. The location is great for visiting the Blyde River Canyon or the Kruger NP. Bill had lots of tips for us what to do and what to see in our two days. Overall we had a great stay and would love to come back. 100% Recommendation.

I can highly recommend staying at Hanny's house! The location is pretty awesome right at the bottom of the Drakensberg in a nice and pretty little village. Great access to any sightseeing places in the Dakensberg and to the Krüger National Park Gates. Lovely hosts who are more than happy to share the best hiking, sightseeing and food locations around. The rooms and everything in the house is decorated to a modern style with nice typically African features! Can only highly recommend to stay here and will definitely be back! Thanks for the great time!

Bill worked in the corporate world and Hanny has long years of professional experience as humanitarian worker and owner/manager of an upmarket guest house in Phalaborwa which has helped to develop a deep understanding and passion for people, culture and service.
We love our beautiful house in Kampersrus, which is a haven of peace and tranquility.
There we let our spirit rest and wish to offer it to like minded people, who are able appreciate what nature and our facility offer, for example, after a long safari day in the park.
