Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.
Learn more about our review moderation.

The cabin was spotless and well equipped. Sitting in the jacuzzi, listening to the sounds of the river and the trumpeter hornbills, looking at the beautiful view - we thought it couldn't get any better and then a waterbuck and her baby appeared. Gay and Willem are lovely hosts, so friendly and helpful.

This was the perfect spot on the river and in the bush to feel like we were in the wild but still close to the Hoedspruit hustle and bustle. Our hosts, Gay and Willem, had thought of everything making the cabin comfortable while retaining a sustainability focus.

we visited the second time and stayed four days. Such a lovely place and we were so happy that Gale and Willem shared their special place with us. Good place for activities around (e.g Blyde River National Park, endangered species centre Hoedspruit) and we also enjoyed the activities there including a visit to the hippos which were absent this time but we learned so much about the nature here. We will come again ! And thank you for renting your SUV which did a perfect job for traveling KNP and Swaziland

The cabins were beautiful, very clean and comfortable even with aircon. Our host Gay was a treasure, so helpful and attentive. Perfect place to find your peace and to re-energise. The views from the cabins are stupendous, I could just sit and stare at the river and listen to the rushing waters and the various bird calls. When I go back I will definitely go on a bush walk with gay. Jessica the hippo is right next door and was the most magnificent, unforgettable experience. Not too far from orpen gate for a day drive.

We had a wonderful stay in the heart of the bush. Nothing to distract from the beautiful surroundings. Gay was a wonderful host, adjusting the activities to suit us just perfectly. We learnt tons of interesting bush facts and loved the stay!

What a wonderful spot to unwind and regroup! The accommodation is spotless and fully equipped. Would recommend booking the unit with the small pool if the weather is super hot. The hosts were super helpful and made us feel right at home.

We are already planning our next visit to Blyde River Cabins. We were so excited when we arrived there. Gay waited for us. It was easy to find the Cabins. The cabin was clean, neat and was well equiped.

We stayed two nights before heading into Kruger. Spotless, well stocked with everything you can hope for and amazing views from the deck.. The jacuzzi was hot even in winter. Amazing service from Gay and Willem. We already planning our next trip..
