Review of Weesgerus Holiday Resort

We have visited Weesgerus quite a few times already, and every time we were very happy with the offerings and impressed by the friendly and helpful staff.

Weesgerus is one of the few holiday resorts that boasts five swimming pools! We enjoyed all of them, three outdoor (lukewarm pool for children, hot and cold for experienced swimmers), and the two heated indoor pools. The super tube was also a highlight!

Weesgerus has a 3km hiking trail, which we enjoyed immensely. The best way to start the morning we found was to take a quick hike to experience the bush waking up, surrounded by the lovely sounds of the many birds in the trees. The hike is not physically strenuous at all, and young and old can enjoy it.

Weesgerus really has everything that we needed to take a break away from the hustle and bustle of daily city life.

Entertainment, restaurant, a bar, swimming pools, put-put, super tube, hiking... It all leads to a very relaxing bushveld breakaway.
