Arimagham Guest House

Arimagham Guest House is ideally situated in the heart of picturesque Phalaborwa in the Limpopo Province.
It is the perfect base from where to explore both the northern and central Kruger Park as well as the many attractions the region has to offer.

The five luxury en-suite double/twin rooms are spacious and individually decorated with air conditioning and coffee and tea making facilities. A full English breakfast is served. The garden is a sub-tropical oasis with prolific bird life and is home to other small animals like Klip dassies, squirrels, and even the odd monkey. Enjoy a drink from our bar under the beautiful indigenous trees or soak up the sun around the swimming pool.

We have an exciting voucher agreement for breakfast and dinners with Safari Junction Grill House (situated at Forever Resort Safari Park) as well as in-house options.

We have special Safari packages which include helicopter rides, bush walks, and bush braais in Big 5 territory.

  • "Stay at Arimagham Guest House"

    21 July 2015

    "We did not enjoy our stay at Arimagham Guest House. It has been over-rated in that the bathroom/toilet is open (no privacy); we could not even heat our food (no microwave); and the host/hostess had to clean-up and make space in their fridge for our perishables, which went off due to this delay. The breakfast was also disappointing, with the main breakfast being one egg and two rashers of bacon."

  • "Fabulous stay... so friendly and helpful"

    01 September 2014

    "Helmut and Linette are gems. I arrived too late to safely get any dinner on my own in Phalaborwa. They took care of me and fed me but wouldn't take any money for it. They were just so helpful and caring.The room was large, clean and quiet. Great shower. I thought it was excellent value. I hope to see them again one day. I highly recommend them. They have a lovely garden, pool and dog."

    "Many thanks to Helmut and Lynette for sharing their home and beautiful garden with us over the week. We were welcomed after a long day on the road with a delicious dinner, and we enjoyed all our breakfasts! Our hosts went way beyond the call of duty in helping us find our way around the area and enabling us to enjoy brais in the garden providing all the wood and even the memorable pap and sauce! Also thank you for being so helpful allowing us to breakfast late!"

    12 April 2012

    "We stayed at Arimagham Guest House in Phalaborwa for one night. The Guest House is situated in a very quiet neighbourhood, just minutes from the Phalaborwa gate of Kruger National Park. We were welcomed by owners Helmut and Lynette, along with their lovely dog Fly (please don’t be put off if you are not a fan of dogs, Fly was very well tempered, clean and not a bother at all). Upon arrival we had drinks at the ‘bar’ and felt very welcome as we sat and chatted with Helmut. The rooms are very clean, air-conditioned, comfortable and tastefully decorated. The back yard has a lovely swimming pool and is beautifully landscaped. The breakfast was wonderful assortment of eggs, sausages, cereals, toast, fruit, yogurt, coffee, tea, juice and multiple condiments. Overall, we enjoyed our stay at Arimagham Guest House, and would stay there again and recommend it to others."

    21 January 2008

    "I was sorry not to have stayed for dinner. Will definitely do that next time. The hosts were welcoming, friendly, but not intrusive. The room was perfect, other than only one power point, which made it a bit difficult to charge two phones, laptop, have TV on, and make coffee. The room and bathroom, in fact the entire House, were well appointed, yet uncluttered, which would have been uncomfortable in such a hot environment. Love the dog!!!!!"
