"This is our third time back and we still love every moment of it. The place is so peaceful and private and if you do not wish to drive out, you can stay back and still enjoy your day. There is everything you may need and you don't miss anything from home. The administration is so professional and kept me up to date on everything, even if its the password changes for the gate. The area is very secure and a pure pleasure to wake up to the beautiful view. Everything is well maintained and value for money. Its a perfect stay for little kids as the private splash pool keeps them entertained. The place is nice and clean and even meets the high standards of my mom :). "

"The tranquility around this place is inexplicable. I loved the place when I was here last September with my kids.
This year I came back with friends, sister and daughter. In total we were 8. It is just a home away from home. I can never get enough of it. The braai area, cleanliness, the cottages themselves, check in process was also smooth, maintenance of the pool area and outside.We were also comfortable knowing we are safe. The highlight was when we were greeted by a visit by a big family of monkeys on Saturday morning. We were so fascinated. I can write a story about this beautiful place. All I can say is everyone that has seen my pictures wants to book this place and all I do is to forward the details to them. Lizel and team, thank you."

"Breath of fresh air"

"Amazing Time at Fire Thorn"

"What can I say, words can't begin to explain how elated I am. We had a very pleasant stay at Fire Thorn!

The house which is spacious was very neat and had all the resources we needed. It was a home away from home.

Other than the damaged ironing board and the light bulb in the outside room not working everything was perfect.

The group ranged from age 2 to 67 and each and everyone of us had a marvelous time!

We enjoyed braaing, playing pool and sitting on the porch whilst taking pictures of the magnificent views.

We loved seeing the animals, being surrounded by nature and the smell of fresh air in the mornings.

The staff were very professional and very friendly starting with the security guard with his great sense of humour and pleasant jokes he made. We looked forward to seeing him each time we drove out and came back from our daily excursions.

The receptionist was also very helpful and informative.

The cleaners were patient with us and very cooperative.

We enjoyed the morning cruise on our last day and the boat driver was such a humble soul.

We felt very welcome and at one point thought of staying one more night - If only we didn't have to go back to work the following morning!

We have enjoyed our stay so much so that we are planning to return to Fire Thorn - Hopefully in the near future.

Thank you for everything. We will definitely recommend it to friends and family."


"Wonderful, and relaxing"

"We so enjoyed our stay, the pool table was a great source of entertainment. the pool was very cold, but in the right temperatures would have been fantastic. still loved sitting outside in the sun.

the rooms themselves were very spacous and beautifully decorated"

The light in the kitchen does not work.

The 4th bedroom was not cleaned.

The tV in the main bedroom did not work - I think because of the roof leaking.

But overall it was very enjoyable and the decor of the house is stunning!"

It was nice to hear their noises as well as the pheasants. The aloe's were in full bloom, makes nice photo's. As from the first gate up to all of the staff, all of them are friendly.
We will visit again.
Thank you for having us

"We enjoyed our stay tremendously. It is very spacious and caters for 4 couples with great ease. Three bedrooms inside the house,(2 en-suite) and 1 bedroom en-suite outside. The little pool on the deck was a winner when you come home from a day of sight-seeing. The tranquility you experience is a welcoming change from the hustle of city life. The Sundowner cruise followed by a dinner at the Hulala Lakeside Lodge,was realy enjoyed by all of us. If at all possible, we would love to visit this place again. The only negative thing was the current roadworks, which added 20 minutes of waiting (both ways) each time we went driving anywhere, but hopefully that will be over very soon."
