Very peaceful and the animals are cute. Chalet not ready and owners not even aware of our booking when we arrived. Put us in another chalet. Fridge didn't work and sheets were stained. Needed a good clean. Enjoyed our stay though. Animals and location great.

Our family had a lovely time away at Kwa Manzi. Our 6 year old daugter was most impressed with the farm animals: goats, ducks, pigs, chickens, horses and geese. It was just what we needed, a rustic get away. Thank you Craig for being such a good host.

On booking, the owners require you to sign a form where you agree that they won't give you a refund under any circumstances. This should have been the first warning.
The taps were broken and the base of the toilet was shattered, for a lack of a better word. It did not look safe to sit on. The toilet seat looked so grimy my wife refused to sit on it.
Then there was the bathroom door. There simply wasn't one. Let me repeat that, there was no bathroom door in a more or less open plan cottage. The sink and the shower looked dirty and covered with mildew. The bathroom towels smelled musky and off.
The bedroom. The bedding smelled like old sweat and body-odor and there was dust and cobwebs throughout the whole unit.
The furniture in living-room looked stained and dirty as well.
Outside, the pool was green and murky. The units where also so close together that you could actually hear your neighbors having conversations and hear their radios well into the night.
If you're looking for accommodation in Magaliesburg, I'd recommend going someplace else.

Unfortunately we did not enjoy anything from our stay, from the entrance to the yard it's so untidy,the smell,flies and not forgetting poor management /service and the notice. The place need new management to take care of that farm also a serious renovation and fast or license department needs to review the place again.

The pool was dirty and no one could swim in such a pool. Two of the units had cocroaches in the kitchen and there were spider webs. A real farm but would be nice if the units can be painted and cleaned properly.
