Situated inside the Crocodile River Reserve, Ibis River Retreat has five spacious cottages to choose from each endowed with their own wow feature - a private jacuzzi and an indoor fireplace for those chilly winter evenings. Four of the five cottages are designed for couples with decent kitchens and large outdoor braai areas. The rustic Fish Eagle cottage sits right on the banks of the river and has an attic bedroom reached via a steep ladder. There is one larger cottage, The Francolin which has two bedrooms and bathrooms and its own firepit. Note that no children aged under 7 are allowed at the property. The property also has its own small spa.
While manageable in an ordinary sedan car, it is worth noting that there is a long and dusty road through the surrounding farmland to reach the property which takes at least 20 minutes. Drive carefully and take your time.
