About Us

The main house offers a relaxing TV lounge, bar and a cosy dining room. There is also a lovely verandah for early morning breakfasts. The rooms are all tastefully decorated and situated around the gardens. Each has a spectacular view of the gardens and the surrounding valley. The gardens are a haven for birds. Louries, Hornbills, African Hoopoes, Hadedas, Cuckoos and Egyptian Geese are just some of the daily visitors. There is always a cacophony of bird sound in the trees.

The lapa and sala offer lovely shaded areas in the summer to enjoy a refreshing drink and from where the more athletic guests can be observed.

The boma offers an alternative to evening dining and is a popular venue for birthday / anniversary celebrations, karaoke evenings and team building. Many potjiekos competitions have been held here.

Nice by Nature boasts a beautiful wedding venue overlooking the Wilgespruit. The lovely chapel seats up to 100 guests and the reception room seats the same. This venue caters for all types of weddings and is suitable for smaller and second weddings. Viewing is available at all times.

The staff at Nice by Nature have all been hand-picked for their friendliness, big smiles and their ability to make guests feel at home. They are regularly re-trained in all aspects of the business and as a result are proud to be part of the Nice by Nature family.

Nice by Nature is graded annually to ensure a high standard prevails, both by the AA and the Tourism Grading Council of South Africa.

Children are more than welcome and are encouraged to feed the menagerie of animals that make Nice by Nature their home.

We endeavor to make your stay with us as memorable and enjoyable as possible.

Getting there is not great. Having a township near and not a great road to the place are definitely negatives... but they'll disappear faster than you drove past the township when you arrive as the venue is amazing.

The room is great and tastefully furnished. Shower floor needs some love but nothing an afternoon of elbow grease can't fix.

Amazing. Everyone there goes above and beyond.

Didn't get enough time to use it, beyond a walk around but I'll definitely be back in summer to try that pool and tennis court. The library is awesome too.

Honestly a true hidden gem and worth your time to stay there!
