As you enter the wrought-iron gates, and set off along the bougainvillea-lined drive toward Plumbago Guest House, you will feel the relaxation wash over you. Plumbago is as pretty as the flower that shares its name, and is located on an avocado and banana farm, perched above the plantation looking towards the Kruger National Park in the distance. Welcome!
The 1940s jazz in the background sets the right tone for the en suite bathrooms, tea trays and fine bed linen have a casual gracefulness about them with subtle, natural tones, Jacobean print curtains, mahogany beds and abundance of vased and water-colored flowers.
The elegant pool and sauna in the beautifully tended bird-filled garden allows for relaxation. The tennis court has a viewing lapa with a mini library – complete with history-reading corner. We are fully licensed and accept all credit cards – but please do remember to book for lunch and dinner so that we can make it memorable for you.
