The twenty rooms and the charming, thatched farmhouse are shaded by magnificent trees and have breath-taking views down the valley. Rissington's congenial hosts ensure cheerful, attentive hospitality allowing guests total freedom to unwind and enjoy the peace of the bush, lie by the sunny pool or walk down the valley with its spectacular birds and game sightings.

Summerfields retreat & spa

The owners of Summerfields Estate, Andre and Ilse, and their children Natia, Esli and Antoine have a vision to create an environment where active farming and warm hospitality can co-exist in a wonderfully unique way. Since 2002 they have been working towards this vision, creating a beautiful lodge, the Tented Suites, and the Spa.  Today Summerfields is an enchanting location and is popular with guests passing through on their way to the Kruger Park or needing a romantic weekend.

Perhaps it’s a fusion of African sensibilities with the roses from which Summerfields Rose Retreat & Spa derives its intriguing charm. Or is it the bygone romance underscored by percale linen in a tented lodge suite? If not that then the fact that you may take a treatment in a spa pavilion set beside the river in which hippos bathe at dusk?”

Cuckoo Ridge, hazyview

Situated in the heart of an indigenous forest this oasis of lawn and selected trees offers a tranquil setting overlooking a valley of lush greenery and adjacent fruit farms. The all-weather concrete access road winds its way through an indigenous landscape with the occasional sighting of Red Duiker, Bush Buck, vervet monkeys and bands of mongoose.


Relax in the sun by the rock pool or in the shade of the boma with a book from our library, your private covered veranda in your chalets offers views over the Majajekulo river valley. Braai (Barbeque) under the stars listening to the African night, on quiet nights the sound of running water from the Majajekulo river can be heard between the cries of the Bush babies as they go about their nocturnal lives.
