  • "Wonderfully peaceful and relaxing"

    19 July 2016

    "<p>A comfortable and very well-kept chalet in beautiful and peaceful surroundings. We received avery friendly welcome by Henriette and her team despite our late arrival.</p><p>The fireplace in the lapa is situated on the ground, rather than in a "built-up" braai area.We always prefer it this way (on the ground) as it becomes a far better "Kuiergat". </p><p>The property has goodbirdlife and abundant game. We were blessed with a Narina Trogon settling down 4 metres from us.</p><p>The absence of the big five in the property is a bonus asone can explore the bush on foot safely and without the need of a guide.The roaringlions and laughinghyenas from neighbouring game reserves are nevertheless clearly audible.A great bush experience. Thank you.</p><p></p><p></p><p></p><p></p><p></p>"

  • "Glad we found it"

    20 August 2015

    "We are really glad we found and stayed at Guernsey Breakaway Chalets. Warm and kind hosts, peaceful stay, just what we needed. The chalets are not 5 star bush lodges but they do provide everything you need for a very nice stay. Walking around in the bush surrounded by game was a treat. We stayed 2 nights and will be back again in October. Very enjoyable."

  • "Very nice, I recommend"

    21 July 2015

    "I spent with 3 friends of mine a night in the Giraffe chalet, and I really wish I had had some more time in this lovely place. As soon as we arrived we were welcome by a giraffe drinking in front of our terrace and we could have a very pleasant walk in the forest near by. The chalet itself was simple but more than enough. Our host Henriette was most welcoming and helpful."

  • "Safe, Cosy & Peace of Mind bushveld Family breakaway"

    13 April 2015

    "Looking for a family friendly bushveld retreat? Look no further than this establishment. Guernsey Breakaway Chalets has been pleasant for my family on our weekend retreat from 10 to 12 April 2015. My kids had a wonderful time and really enjoyed the bushveld and exposure to the animals especially wildlife on the property. Thank you to Henriette van Niekerk and her Family for the wonderful hospitality. God bless. Conrad Hlangwini - Witbank"

  • "Perfect!"

    23 September 2013

    "Loved the Chalets and will definitely be back again. Owners are friendly! Our cottage was situated in the most amazing spot. It was peaceful and very relaxing. The aircon was a nice surprise, the cottage itself very basic but exactly what we needed for a one night stop over.Would recommend to anyone looking for a stop over when heading into the Kruger National Park."
