WiFi, ELECTRICITY & WATER
WiFi is like Faith - Its invisible but it connects you to what you need
Free Wifi is available. The strength of the signal is strongest in the public areas but WiFi is in most cases available in the guest chalets and cottages too. Please note that although our internet service provider is generally very reliable, connectivity can be lost for a number of reasons outside the control of Komati River Chalets at any time.
Komati River Chalets runs off the South African (Eskom) power grid. In the event of a power cut a standby generator will then continue to provide power between the hours of 07h00 and 22h00. All accommodations are provided with candles and matches for light after 22h00 in the event of a power cut.
The water provided from taps in all accommodations is safe for human consumption as it is supplied from a borehole. The ground water from the borehole has a fairly high lime content which gives the water a soft texture. All efforts have been made to reduce the lime content from the water in the form of water filters fitted to water pipes outside of each accommodation.

Free daily house keeping is provided in all chalets and cottages. Check in on arrival is from 12h00 and check out on departure is before 09h30.
