This is such an amazing get away spot, peaceful & tranquil, with calming water features. Away from any noise to genuinely relax & you can even hear the frogs at night.The hosts are incredibly hospitable & friendly & always make sure that one is happy & that all your needs are met. It includes an amazing breakfast, from a cooked breakfast to fresh fruits & yoghurt & freshly baked bread.It's still very close to the actual town Wilderness should you want to go to restaurants or shops. There's wi-fi, Dstv, board games, beautiful lounges & a swimming pool, etc. etc.You will definitely be back once you've experienced it.

Quaint little place that has a very homely feeling to it. Very secluded and out of the way to get away from the buzz. Daily room service keeps your stay comfortable.

My husband and I loved staying at the Old Trading Post in the newly renovated Garden Room. We had a wonderful time. The Old Trading Post is located in a quiet but tranquil place in Wilderness and the Garden Room is perfect for a couple. The open courtyard is perfect for braais which we made use of daily!Mike and Harja, thank you for your hospitality and kindness. It was a wonderful stay and hope to visit again soon.
