“We love hearing from our guests.”

Read through our most recent reviews given by guests from all over the world. Read how they have experienced their stay at Ubuntu Luxury Villa.


What can I say, Probably the most beautiful place we've ever stayed in and peaceful is an understatement. I don't want to share this place with anyone as it's beyond beautiful. You won't want to play music, watch TV but just chill and read a book whilst watching the wildlife around you, eating or going on safari. Super King bed, stunning bathrooms, aircon in bedrooms, kitchen fully kitted, Laundry room, swimming pool, sun loungers and towels etc etc. I could bore you to tears with 'incredible this and incredible that'. The viewing deck has a lovely breeze and we spent many hours up there with binoculars or having dinner in the evening. Anouk & Dennis were absolutely incredible Hosts. The love that's been put into this place is second to none and to share it was an honour. Please look after Ubuntu with the love it deserves. DO hire a car as you need one. The best holiday I've had ever but please don't tell anyone 🙂

What an AMAZING place to stay while in Hoedspruit! The Villa is just as beautiful as the pictures and videos we’ve seen before we booked. You’ll have a wonderful stay in this luxury, beautiful, well equipped, and extremely comfortable villa. Anouk and Dennis do a perfect job on making sure the guests enjoy their time, very responsive, organized and always whiling to make great recommendations – we had two magnificent experiences referred from them (a perfect Safari tour and a wonderful diner at the villa). You’ll never forget your Ubuntu experience, the sunsets, the animals that come to the property while you’re in the pool, the coffee on the observation deck and specially the bike rides around the estate surrounded by zebras, giraffes, wildebeest and plenty of other wild animals. One of those once in a lifetime experience is waiting for you. We made Ubuntu our home for a few nights and we will never forget how special our experience was. Looking forward to comeback!


What an amazing place! As a regular visitor to Kruger and Hoedspruit area we can say that this is the MOST AMAZING place we ever stayed at! From our booking enquiry until the follow-up after our stay, everything was great. The eye for detail in all brochures before the stay is amazing, so many extra options they have to offer, we could have stayed here for weeks! 🙂 Located in the (for us) best part of the estate this is a dream come true to stay here. The house itself is very spacious and very clean. A covered outside sitting area with fans, a large pool, very nice boma area and best of all the large viewing deck made the whole experience even better. No doubt we will be back as soon as possible!

We had an exceptional few day stay. We really didn’t want to leave. As soon as we stepped foot on the property, we were in heaven. The pictures don’t do this place justice. We appreciated all the help the team put into prior to our stay. Thanks for making our first trip to SA memorable!


Wow!!! Beautiful beautiful place nestled in such a private location with everything you could possibly need just around the corner — shops, spa, game drives without compromising on seclusion and privacy at all. The house was very clean and spacious. Dennis, Anouk and David were phenomenal hosts who thought of everything you could possibly need. They were always responsive and ready to help with anything. All in all, brilliant stay and I will be back without a doubt.


Ubuntu luxury villa is stunning. We enjoyed everything. Decor is tasteful, the house is spacious and comfortable. Shower was great, beds comfortable, every detail thought about. Shopping nearby was convenient and kitchen had everything we needed. We loved it. We enjoyed the day trips recommended and arranged by owners Dennis & Anouk and David the manager and the delicious meal cooked by a private chef. Thank you for a wonderful vacation, we loved the villa!


Fully immersed in the Ubuntu experience. The holiday was perfect, the villa is really beautiful and cared for down to the smallest detail. It's nice how Dennis and Anouk have managed to give the villa individuality through details, photos, etc. The area is really special and it's nice how Dennis and Anouk thought about trips and supported them in arranging them. Credits for what they have put up in beautiful Hoedspruit and we recommend everyone to experience this!

This place absolutely exceeded our expectations, the pictures just don’t do is justice. Dennis and Anouk were so helpful and responsive long before our arrival to South Africa and were kind enough to schedule a Safari for us, which we really enjoyed. My only regret is not having stayed longer. David is probably the best host I think I’ve had in all our time traveling. He was so warm and welcoming, made us feel immediately at home and was available for any questions we had throughout the entire stay. I can’t wait to come back


Wonderful stay in an amazing environment. Facilities in this villa are fantastic. Really fully equipped. We really had an unforgettable time, making all kinds of beautiful trips in the area. The location of Hoedspruit is centrally located to easily visit a number of highlights! We will definitely come back here.

We had an incredible stay. We loved your home. It made us feel like our home, we loved how well everything worked and so many things were well thought through. We loved the viewing deck, every afternoon we would all meet up at the viewing deck to have a sundowner and a chat. The Hoedspruit Wildlife Estate was so peaceful. We enjoyed riding the bicycles through the estate and saw so many animals. This was the highlight of our trip. It was the best experience for us as a family. The game drives are always fun too. We think the morning drives are the best. We were so lucky to see hyena, lions and rhino. We said we would like to meet each other in the bush every year and we will most certainly return to Ubuntu Luxury Villa as it was really the most special experience. Thank you!

The most breathtaking experience at Ubuntu Villa. If you’re looking for where to stay around the Kruger/Hoedspruit area, this villa is the perfect gem 💎 right in the middle of the bush. Extremely Beautiful, Extremely Clean, Great Architecture, Stunning! From the moment we walked in, we knew we were going to have the best 3 days ever, and that’s exactly what it was. The hosts were so so so friendly, attended to every question and need of ours, we literally felt like we were in our own home! Breakfast & dinner with the private chef was amazing, so was the massage on the deck. We will always come back, thanks so much guys.


Ubuntu Luxury Villa is a stunning property in a quiet little reserve perfect for friends and/or family to share a relaxing holiday. The home is bright, immaculately clean, tastefully decorated and well equipped inside and out. During our stay we explored the reserve both on self-drives and on foot and saw a nice variety of game while out and about, but also right outside the villa doors. Dennis & Anouk, Kleintjie & Annalie make a great team and provide excellent advice and suggestions for filling your days with fun and adventure in the surrounding area. We thoroughly enjoyed our four day stay and highly recommend this property.


Our stay with Dennis and Anouk was perfect! The villa is even more beautiful in real life, everything is magnificent, it makes you want to live there. During the day we had wild animals as well as impalas visiting us, it was incredible moments. The responsiveness of Dennis and Anouk was impeccable, thank you again for everything. And thank you also to David their host for welcoming us and above all for allowing us to go to the reserve which is right next to the villa to be able to see lions, a moment which will remain engraved forever. We will come back with pleasure and this time with our families so that they can discover this fabulous place! Thanks again for everything, we ended our trip in style!


This is the ideal place for us for a luxurious holiday in the South African bush. The Villa is fully equipped. We enjoyed the outdoor shower, breakfast, various drinks and snacks during sunset on the watchtower and the extensive massage of Africology Spa on the outside deck of the villa. The swimming pool was very welcome with the high summer temperatures. From the villa we discovered the wilderness area by car, on foot and we also rented mountain bikes, which was a very nice experience for us and we saw a lot of wildlife such as zebra, giraffe, impala, etc. A 30 minute drive away we took a nice walk in the Blyde River Canyon, along the dam, the Peninsula Trail. We also did a Safari in Kruger National Park which is only a 45 minute drive away. Close to the villa we had a delicious lunch + Game drive at Khaya Ndlovu on Christmas Day. We are already looking forward to our next stay at the villa!


Beautiful home in an amazing area. The service before and during our stay was exceptional. Dennis & Anouk provided all the needed informations to have a great time in Hoedspruit and Kruger. The house is perfect for a group or family of 6 and looks exactly like the pictures. Well equiped and perfectly cleaned. In the wildlife estate are many animals to see like Zebras, Giraffes or even Honey Badgers. Our host Joanne was very helpful and helped us a lot! The pre-booked day-trips to Kruger and Panorama Route with Theo were amazing as well. Strong recommendation, especially for first time visitors of this area.

The villa is not just a place to stay, but provides a very well-rounded experience as a ``base camp`` for any wildlife and nature experiences. ``Luxury” here does not mean golden handlebars, but convenience and extremely well-organized excursions and other services (like grocery shopping) that leave you nothing to worry about. This was hands-down one of our best travel experiences! No date yet, but when (and not if) we come back, we will definitely want to stay with you again.


Wonderfully homely with luxury touches. Serene setting but so conveniently located close to local shops and restaurants. Between the bike adventures, the wildlife on the estate and glorious warm Lowveld winter days, even our kids rated this one of their top 3 holidays ever. Thank you Anouk, Dennis and our lovely host David. An absolutely wonderful, worthwhile getaway!


It's the most beautiful accommodation I ever visited in South Africa! l loved everything, the kitchen, all bedrooms were spacious, outside showers, the location is just perfect for unwinding. I'm definitely coming back!


Really enjoyed our stay. The property is well equipped with everything you need away from home, thank you for allowing us to experience your home. Looking forward to visiting again. This one gets 10/10. Perfect location, great hospitality, excellent welcome and send off.

Ubuntu Luxury Villa is the perfect place to relax and recharge. Beautifully decorated and very spacious. Loved every piece of it!

Ubuntu Luxury Villa is an exceptional place in the bush, ideally located to explore Hoedspruit and surrounds. The Villa looks exactly (and better) than the amazing photos show, and you will not be disappointed! It is neat as a pin, and sparkling clean, with high quality amenities. Well done to the Ubuntu team!


Absolutely gorgeous house. No expense was spared. Dennis and Anouk’s attention to deal and little finishing touches is so far above the normal. The wildlife estate itself is a piece of heaven. You can sit on the back deck and watch the wildlife walk by. You can hike or drive the game paths and see animals up close, including giraffes! If you are lucky, the warthogs will stop by the house for breakfast. Can’t say enough good things about this place!

Kleintjie (our host) received and orientated us well on check in day and was very helpful in navigating us around Hoedspruit with regards to restaurants, Safari game drives, Spa treatments and places that provided us with the best cuts of meat and boerewors for our Hoedspruit Lekker braai. We highly appreciated his professionalism, promptitude and always going the extra mile when we needed his assistance. The villa is beyond stunning, vast amenities, impeccable finishes & decor and was well maintained (upkeep) throughout our stay.

I highly recommend Ubuntu Luxury Villa. The spacious design, viewing deck, swimming pool and outdoor showers are an exceptional value add. The property is well equipped and we loved the comfortable furniture, in particular on the veranda. The surrounding wilderness meant we had lovely bird and animal sightings, it is the perfect spot to zone out, relax and enjoy the African tranquility.

So great to back at such an amazing Villa. The Villa is always spotless and the hosts are very friendly. We would recommend Ubuntu Villa to any one who is looking for an unforgettable stay in The bush. Can’t wait to come back soon.


Amazing place. We had a lovely family holiday. Beautiful villa with a nice pool for hot days - thanks for having us!

Dennis and Anouk's place is exceptional. Great attention to detail and true luxury in the bush! Thank you for an amazing stay. The place is stunning! Hoping to visit again soon

We want our guests to feel effortlessly at home here; fed by nature, nurtured by beauty, and able to tap into the sense of place that we’ve found so remarkable since our very first visit to this part of South Africa. There is no doubt our time in the Hoedspruit area has changed us for the better – we’ve designed everything to try and share that experience with you.”
