That was very nice. The owner is really interesting and kind. He can give to you some advice if you need. He has also some books about wildlife. The camp is at 4km from The gate of the Kruger National park. We were camping in grass. Toilette, kitchen is fully equipped and clean. Thanks James.

This place was amazing. Rooms are very clean, very friendly owners, comfortable beds. The only drawback was a lack of musquito nets in the dorm.
