  • Izintaba is a fantastic place. What a surprise to find such a well managed and well equipped place in the bush. The peace and quiet is awesome and the night sky amazing. No pollution and great walks. We loved it here and having delicious food delivered to the cottage was a real treat. Highly recommended. Thank you so much Nikki and Andrew


  • My 3rd visit. Don't want to go. We have enjoyed the utter peace. A very special place!


  • We loved every minute of our stay at Izintaba! The cottage we stayed in was great, and everything is very clean. There is so much to do! We especially enjoyed riding with our bikes through the Reserve. We will certainly be back!
