Perfect for… Peaceful getaways surrounded by birdlife


Located on the banks of the Sabie River and surrounded by lush gardens, Laughing Waters Guest House in Hazyview offers Tuscan ambience and an outdoor pool.


Through the landscaped courtyard, most of the rooms offer views of the surrounding habitats. The accompanying abundant birdlife gives rise to the evocative calls of fish eagles during the day and the haunting calls of the night-jars after dark. And above all there is an overwhelming sense of peace!


Guests can take a swim in the outdoor pool or relax in the lounge area, which offers a selection of books.


An English breakfast is served on the veranda, overlooking the garden. Dinner can be arranged upon advance request.
