iGwala gwala Country House is nestled within the green surrounds of a six hectare garden. It is positioned just outside of White River and provides easy access to the Phabeni and Numbi Gates of the Kruger National Park.

iGwala gwala has seven double rooms and two cottages and offers guests privacy and a sense of peace. Suites and public areas combine a mix of old colonial, modern African and an English Country House.

iGwala gwala is owner managed and presents attentive yet unobtrusive services. The well kept garden and many trees are home to a wide variety of birds and provide great cover for the shy iGwala gwala. (SiSwati for the purple crested loerie). The garden with its many water features provides excellent opportunities for wedding photographs.

iGwala gwala Country House will tailor make a package to fit your function needs and your budget. No function is too big or too small to receive our personal attention, thoughtful menu and hands on support.

Country House Guest Rooms

The country house has six well-appointed guests rooms with en-suite bathrooms and private entrances leading onto the veranda and garden. Four rooms offer king-size beds, one room offers two single beds and one room offers three single beds.

Cottages (Self-Catering)

There are two secluded self-catering Cottages that have private entrances which lead out to the garden. Each Cottage has one bedroom with a double bed and a full bathroom. The kitchen is equipped with a fridge and microwave, and opens into the large lounge area that can comfortably accommodate up to another three guests.

Breakfasts are served in the well-appointed dining room. These include fruit, cereal and a full English breakfast.

Breakfast is served between 7am until 9am. Early risers can request a packed picnic basket. Lunch and dinner are provided on request. This can be served on your own veranda or next to the sparkling pool. All meals are prepared on the premises and where possible our own fruit and seasonal vegetables are used. Our free range chickens provide fresh eggs. Meat, poultry and fish is sourced locally. Our culinary skills range from a formal three course dinner to a simple organic salad.
