We loved our stay at Little Carthage. We spent two nights but could have easily stayed longer. It's fairly remote (7km down a dirt road) but that's part of the magic. We had monkeys visit us occasionally and we enjoyed watching the baboons play on their rocks from our pool deck. Heather is a wonderful host.

What an amazing place, we spent a relaxing 3 days here before heading off to Kruger. Heather was the perfect host and nothing was too much trouble and her staff were very friendly and helpful. It was very relaxing to enjoy the sunsets from the pool and the kids loved the fact the wifi was excellent. The drive in and out took a while as so much wildlife to enjoy and the reserve was safe to walk... Read more

We loved the outdoor kitchen and the beautiful pool deck overlooking the river. The dogs had a wonderful time too! Thank you Heather. Highly recommended.

We loved our short but amazing stay. Heather was an amazing host ensuring that we had everything we needed. My children loved that they could play on the "beach" making mud cakes and pretending to be rock dassies jumping from one rock to the next. My dogs had the best time with all the open space to explore.

Last minute my hubby and our 3 fury babies found this hidden gem. We loved every second of our stay and will definitely book in for longer next time! Heather and her crew were friendly, helpful, and super generous! Loved the energy of the place and the people. We will be back!
