About La Lechere Guest House

La Lechere Guesthouse is a luxurious and peaceful haven only five kilometres from the Kruger National Park. Quietly situated on the outskirts of Phalaborwa, this 4-star guesthouse has a contemporary African ambience and offers a perfect bush experience.

Healthy breakfast is served on the wooden sundeck overlooking the pool.

La Lechere offers an intimate and relaxed atmosphere with a lot of personal attention as well as being a German spoken Guesthouse. There are seven well-appointed thatched guestrooms and one executive suite with a private entrance, an en-suite bathroom, crisp white linen, a mosquito net, air-conditioning, a flat screen TV, a mini-bar and wireless internet. The suite opens up to a private patio leading to the lovely garden and the swimming pool. Credit card facilities are available.

Our stay was absolutely splendid. Everything was in order, and the staff is quite friendly. I would recommend La lechere to anybody who want serenity & to escape the busy lifestyle. It was a wonderful way to end 2009 & begin 2010. The bedroom finishes are beautiful.

If I knew before, I would have spent more nights in this fantastic place.

Actually we chose La Lechere because we didn't get a place within one of the rest camps in the Krüger Park, but in the end we were more than happy that we did so! We were welcomed warmly and got many useful tips for exploring the park and the restaurants in town. Nothing was too much for Barbara and Alex - they even got up very early in the morning to prepare a small breakfast and say good bye! The guesthouse is wonderful - the pictures do not really show how nice it is. We definitely will recommend it to all our friends.
