About Idle & Wild

Listen to the fish eagles calling as you unwind in secluded and spacious African thatched Rondavels.Soak up the warmth of the sun around the pool or pamper yourself in the sauna. Idle & Wild is on a working macadamia nut farm in the Sabie River Valley. Each Rondavel is privately set in a sub-tropical garden. The Sabie River runs through our property and peaceful walks can be taken. A full English breakfast is served on the verandah of the main house, or should you wish to make an early start to the Kruger National Park, a packed breakfast will be provided. IDLE & WILD is ideally situated for a rejuvenating break in the heart of nature, or exploring the surrounding areas such as Kruger National Park, God's Window, Bourke's Luck Potholes, Pilgrims Rest and the many waterfalls. Hot air ballooning, game drives horse riding, skyway trails, hikes, bass fishing & cycling are just some of the activities in the area. We offer Quad Bike Trails & River Rafting on site.

Absolutely lovely and Chrissie was the most helpful host ever! Lovely setting and close to shops, restaurants and of course, the Kruger and Gods Window. Comfortable and spacious chalet. White water rafting was a great experience and loads of fun.

Excellent rondavel, lovely garden and setting, friendly staff. Breakfast very ordinary and should be improved. No prepared fruit as in fruit salad and cheap unappetising bread.
