“Home away from home!”
Reviewed 27 February 2014

Plumbago is a must for anybody travelling to this beautiful part of South-Africa. You will be welcomed and loved and appreciated by Ilara and Robbie every minute of your stay. Prepare yourself for an experience you will always remember, enjoy the fantastic cuisine and view and sit back and relax. Share Plumbago with the people you love, you will not regret it! For me this is home away from home!

A great stay in a quiet and green surrounding area. The apartment has a well equiped kitchen including a washing machine. The view from the terrace was stunning. We felt very welcome by the lovely owners.

After leaving Kruger Park we stayed at Plumbago Guest House. We only stayed 1 night but would definitely like to stay longer next time. We received a warm welcome from ilara and Robbie and the dogs (let us not forget Tigger the cat also). The suites were well-equipped, comfortable and spacious and dinner and breakfast were excellent. Sincere thanks to ilara and Robbie and staff, you definitely deserve your 5 star rating.

We loved our stay at Plumbago Guest House over Christmas. Our doggie Tiffany was treated like one of their own, and even received a bowl of bacon on Christmas morning! Their hospitality is remarkable and the food top quality. We will be back!

I can only say how brilliant my stay at Plumbago was from arriving until leaving. The decor, the food, the owners, staff and also importantly the resident doggies made my visit memorable.

A must place to stay even if only for 1 night, try and stay at least 2 nights though to make the experience really worthwhile..

Enjoy the fabulous views from the terrace overlooking the Kruger National Park in the distance.

Savour the delectable cuisine, enjoy a glass of wine and relax.

Peace and serenity, just the twittering of birds as background music.

A great place to stay when visiting the area, including the Kruger National Park.

Thank you one and all and will hopefully enjoy a second stay sometime in the not too distant future.

Room Tip: 3 Suites only and all gorgeous

It was a restful break with little else to do but to enjoy the family on our annual holiday. Mike was great at responding to any queries and always helpful. Cellphone signal was always a challenge, but we learnt very quickly to discard all the technology devices and relax for a change.

It says something that when I decided to start writing reviews I wanted to be sure to go back and recognize this very special sanctuary. I take it from recent reviews that Ilara and her family/staff are still delivering a high quality experience that is very personal. Plumbago gets an A+ the awesome breakfasts, helpful staff with huge smiles, clean and spacious accommodations, and serene cared for grounds.
Take advantage of the prix fixe multi course dinner if that is still offered . Well worth it !
Plumbago can be a stopping point en route to Kruger or as a jumping off point for day trips north.
We are so glad we happened upon Plumbago . It is a star in beautiful South Afirca.
