Andre and Ilse, owners of Summerfields Rose Retreat and Spa had a vision: to create an environment where active farming and warm hospitality co-exist in a wonderfully unique way. Since 2002 they have been working towards this vision; creating a beautiful lodge with exquisite dining at River Cafe and Summerfields Kitchen, the Tented Suites and the award-winning Rose Spa. Today Summerfields is an enchanting destination that has become popular with guests visiting the Kruger National Park and Panorama Route or seeking a romantic getaway from urban life.
