Arriving at Kaia Tani I was greeted friendly. Check in was quick and was shown to my room. The very welcome air conditioner sorted out the moggy smell in the room since it was very hot. Very nice bathroom with towels and soap. A bottle of water will be very welcome. Very

Hello Anton. Thank you so much for your review. I would like to point out only: 1) Maybe new wood (because that room is new) and the hot weather created that particular "fragrance" 2) Yes, we forgot to ask you about dinner but it was been an exception because usually we ask our guests it till when they reply us. Sorry if we didn't reply to you but this was not for our mistake: you asked it to us by mail on 13.12.18 at 21.45 (for 14.12.18) and the day after we wasn't able to reply you because there wasn't power in Phalaborwa so we didn't have internet for checking our mail. Sorry for this. I'm sure that next time we'll ask you for dinner (like our habitude). :-) Thank you so much Anton and we wait you again. Kind Regards Paolo

The reception received was extraordinary. My wife and I stayed there for three nights and could not have chosen better. Comfortable and clean rooms, great food and plenty of it and the guys who run the structure are at the complete disposal of their customers! Definitely a place

We stayed in this Wonderful guest house in august 2018. The structure is plunged in the greeen land just a few minutes away from the Kruger National Park. The rooms are painstaking in the minimum details and never standardized. Large and tasty breakfast included in the price

The place is a pleasant overnight facility with helpful staff. Rooms are very tiny and no place to set up a PC to work except outside. Did not eat there as kitchen is closed on Monday. Great for a stopover, good value for money for what they offer.

Hello Monica and thanks for your review but... are you sure it is for Kaia Tani? :-) Because there is a desk inside all OUR rooms (and WI-FI FREE in all guest house) and OUR restaurant is open 365/365! OUR chef cooks only fresh food so we ask (and always we inform our guests) a booking at least 24h before. Kind Regards Monica Paolo

Ciao e scusa se rispondo solo ora. I nuovi proprietari sono amici e in contatto di Alberto e Daniela e si appoggiano a loro per i tour e se non trovano posto hanno comunque ottimo contatti con i ranger del parco! I vecchi proprietari hanno una nuova struttura molto più esclusiva e costosa ma il Kaia Tani merita! Io comunque ho fatto il safari con Alberto quindi se stai qualche giorno non avrai problemi chiedendolo esplicitamente!

Effettuando full day preferisco avere un toyota land cruiser modificato 9 posti...tutti pero' ampiamente finestrati.. mai avuto problemi per le foto in 9 anni, ma assai piu' comodo..eventualmente per le eacursioni piu' brevi organizzate dai rangers si potra' avere un veicolo scoperto...
