Christmas Getaway

What an amazing stay. Absolutely beautiful place with such attention to detail. We were a large group of 19 and everyone had the best time. Nikki and Andrew went out of their way to be the perfect hosts. The Boma dinner was such an awesome experience with delicious and decadent food. We will definitely be back.

Pet friendly, not just pet tolerant

It is lovely to find places that are really pet friendly and don't just tolerate them.
The walking trails, fenced accommodation and swimming pool are all dog friendly. There are plenty of game around the areas with water. The accommodation is very private and good for a long weekend getaway. There are some attention to details that makes the stay more comfortable, like a very effective fridge and freezer. The accommodation has everything you need and is very spacious. It is a nice short getaway to the bush to forget about everything.

Absolute luxury in the bushveld. We stayed in Duiker and had 100% privacy. The accommodation is superb, we loved everything about it, especially all the comfortable furniture and the shower that accommodates tall persons. Sophia, our Foxie, turned out to be a real "bushveld" dog. We enjoyed our own game drives (we saw so many animals), hikes, table tennis, canoeing, reading, braaing, stoep sitting, the peace and quiet and and and. The daily cleaning of the chalet was a treat. Love the fact that there is no shop nearby. Saggruis made us feel very welcome. He seems like a wonderful person to have a braai with so that you can listen to all his tales. A real gem, hopefully we can visit again - soon.

Family holiday

Izintaba is an amazing spot to take your family, the staff are super friendly and amazing. The venue itself has everything you need, kitchens are well equipped. The list of activities and amenities they have onsite are fit for all ages. You have to go to Izintaba if you want to relax and unwind, cell service is limited which makes it even better to bond with the people you are with.

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!


What an absolutely beautiful place! Everything was just perfect! The cottage immaculate, fully equipped. Pet friendly, our dogs loved it! The owners go above and beyond to make your stay your very best.
We drove around the farm and spotted so many animals.
We also went to see the Wild Dogs , a once in a lifetime experience which was spectacular!
Sat round the fire at night and heard nothing except nature. Highly recommend staying here for what I can only say is a magical experience.


Awesome stay! Thanks Nikki & Andrew. Early doggy morning walks were amazing. Sandy drives with the Rav4 a pleasure. Sunsets beautiful. Game drives - the BEST. So so much to see. We so enjoyed all the roads on the farm. We will define this as INCREDIBLE.

Nikki and staff most helpful. So many anymals seen on own gamedrives. Accommodation superb and well serviced. Beiing two ladies only, Johannes even made the braais fire 🔥 for us. Thankyou.


We had a great 1st night sleep after and amazing afternoon & evening of braai, bonfire and finishing off with an inside fire. The peace is something. We all need to reset from our busy & chaotic lives. Our sausage dogs loved every minute of the smells & adventures, thank you!

Perfect weekend getaway to revitalise the mind and soul. First time for our dogs into the bushveld and seeing all the animals. Great location, Great walks, Great Place! Thank you Nikki & Andrew

Natasha & Tarry


Very peaceful & tranquil environment. One of the few pet friendly establishments with a high standard. It was absolutely lovely, even for the little furry ones. Will definitely consider coming back again!

Dwayne & Caszlynne

Once again the peace & the silence of the bush enfolded us the minute we arrived. The birdlife around the cottage was amazing & dusk each evening was a highlight. To watch the sun setting slowly, the bushbaby family that came to visit & to see the antelope just outside the cottage was magical. Thank you for sharing this piece of heaven with us & for the priveledge of celebrating mom's 80th birthday here. Can't wait to visit again!

We are a family with two children under 3 years old, and elderly parents with mobility challenges. We love the bush but battle to find a holiday location that suits the needs of the very young and very old. The cottage was easy to use, cosy and beautiful. There was also a fenced in 'garden' all around our cottage which meant our three year old could be left to wander around and explore all on her own, knowing that she was safe. It was an incredible sense of freedom and we loved the up close and personal experience of the bush that you can only get in a reserve where you are free to walk around without a ranger. Truly excellent holiday, highly recommended. Hosts were also incredibly efficient, friendly and helpful.


This was our 8th visit to Izintaba,as always we had a fantastic time. And we as a couple left "charged" . The accommodation we have find to be constantly very good and the cottages very well equipt. The staff has always been been very friendly and always very willing to assist with any of our needs. We will be back asap , this is a gem and we can honestly recommend Izintaba as a affordable and awesome game farm to visit.

We stayed in the Giraffe cabin. It was very spacious and clean. Can comfortably accommodate 10 people. Wonderful place!!
Thank you Nikki.



I cannot recommend Izintaba more! I have visited the farm 6 times (most recent being this past weekend) and have never been disappointed. Nikki and Andrew have a beautiful farm and love sharing it with their guests. Take your kids, take your dogs. It's safe. If you do go to the farm, be sure to have a sundowner on the sunset rock, picnic on the planes under the big tree and don't shy away from walking/running/cycling the entire farm. We were lucky to see their most recent visitors, enquire about the Wild Dog Experience! As for the cottages, clean, cozy and equipped. The bushbaby's like to come say hello.



My family has just spent 5 nights at Izintaba. What a gem! Absolutely stunning. Spacious accommodation, great hospitality and lovely walks. Highly recommend for a perfect, peaceful getaway. Thank you Nikki and Andrew.

Lynette & Andrew


What a wonderful place! Its design, cleanliness and location, together with the brought dinner made it a perfect ending of our holiday. Just a pity we only booked for one night, the place deserves a longer stay!! Highly recommended!!!!

Susi & Jan


I like the cleanliness and coolness of the rooms inside the lodges. Happiness is all around you from Sunrise to Sundown and kissed by the bonfire. This is the place to be and the place to return to. Well done Izintaba…

Phillip & Annemarie

Once again a wonderful and peaceful stay at Izintaba. We go back rested and happy until next time! Kudu was perfect once again and we just keep coming back for more! Friendly and very helpful staff who go the extra mile. Great to see the dam so full and the lush green veld. See you for visit number 12 and hope it is soon!! WE wish you and your loved ones only the best!

Roland, Ria, Agnus and ChingChing

Absolutely loved our stay here. It was calm and peaceful! The cottage was well equipped and clean. The farm is well kept and bustling with an incredible variety of animals! Thank you Nikki, Andrew and staff for a wonderful holiday! WE WILL BE BACK SOON!!

2nd Visit to Duiker, 3rd to Izintaba- great recovery time from London via Frankfurt. We unpacked in record time so we could enjoy the peace and tranquillity of the bush with braai & sundowners. We will be back in 5 weeks to prepare for the return trip to the UK! Thank you Andrew & Nikki and staff for keeping Izintaba & Duiker in such good shape so one can enjoy the “real” South of Africa
