From my first email inquiry I got all the help I needed from Allison. She gave me info to get my airport transport arranged and her & Cor were perfect owner hosts. I had a little thatched roof hut
(Buffalo) with own bathroom. Because I came in close to sunset, Allison drove me to pick up beer and because the food store was already closed, I was able to order something at the restaurant to go and while we waited for that we had drinks at the bar. There was a kitchen to make my coffee in the AM and a nice outdoor patio with table and chairs. Allison also arranged for my day game drive into Kruger. I had already arranged for my Mozambique and Swaziland Day trips and was picked up right at Kruger Inn Backpackers. Allison also invited me to her bush walk one morning as she is a Marloth Park Ranger. We had other backpackers come in and they cooked on the grill and we all sat out for beers and had a great time. Marloth Park has many zebra, giraffes, warthogs and small impalas roaming free, sometimes right in the driveways. And tribes of monkeys playing about too. Altho there were some swanky spiders in webs outside, I didn't see anything from the insect family in my room. I spent 5 nights here and it was a very good stay.
